A taster of Edinburgh International Book Festival

A 5am start and a 7-hour round trip brought myself and a mini-bus full of teenage enthusiasts down to the Edinburgh Book Festival to meet some great YA authors.

Carl Miller and Keith Gray discussed The Ostrich Boys, both as a novel and as a play (with large- and small-cast versions) that has experienced particular success in South Korea.


Patrick Ness won over the packed audience with his earthy, honest and irreverent personality, answering questions with an equal balance of wit, sincerity, and understanding.


The hardest part of the day was walking around and seeing lists of all the authors and poets I would not  get a chance to listen to or meet.  Definitely on the agenda for next year!
