Children’s Author Is Guest Speaker At Literary Event

I recently spent a lovely afternoon meeting, mixing and mingling with guests and fellow speakers at the Literary Lunch No.7 event in Cheshire.

In October 2019, event organiser Sue France hosted the her 7th annual literary luncheon at Larkspur Lodge in Knutsford. I’ve attended Sue’s Literary Lunch as a guest for the past two years and was delighted to be commissioned to write an original piece of work to perform at this year’s event. 

Entitled Team Author & The Class of 2019 my poem was a celebration of nine fellow children’s authors from publisher Team Author UK (TAUK). Each author mentioned in the lighthearted rhyme attended the event, along with our TAUK ‘Team Captain’ Sue Miller, who received a special thank you.

The audience featured over 100 booklovers and a wide range of authors and budding writers. It was an honour to share the same stage as the amazing international author and keynote speaker Amanda Prowse, who was happy to do a book swap with Bob’s Beard!
