This weekend we went to the Cambridge literature festival held at the Cambridge Union chamber. There were a number of events for adults and for children. We heard tales about animals and then met them, heard Clementine Beauvaistalk talk about her detective books set in Cambridge as well as how to write a detective book, heard Michael Foreman talk about his books and had a lesson about drawing Claude from Alex T Smith. The girls enjoyed it and the festival was very popular with some children's events selling out! Tickets were reasonably priced and authors available after events for signing books.
