Nearly. And only with hard work.
It’s one of the hazards for authors and book festival organisers alike. But Michael is coming back for more, which just goes to prove what a good festival James Draper and Kaye Tew are capable of putting together.
And to think I had the temerity to interrupt their hard work to ask intrusive questions about their qualifications to do what they are doing (I never ask authors that), and if they read books. Honestly, some interviewers don’t know when to stop.
You’ll have to read the interview to find out the answers, and to discover why they do what they do.
The Manchester Children’s Book Festival will begin in exactly one week, on Thursday 28th June.
