The only literature festival previously attended was the World Literature Weekend run by the LRB over the last couple of summers. But in order to take my son deeper into the world of Beast Quest, which he loves so much, this weekend we headed to Bath and the Children’s Literature Festival.
Aside from regrets about not going to more sessions the Beast Quest event was brilliantly done. On one level it was a reading but it was acted brilliantly and then the children were invited to participate and get up on stage.
The book stall on the way out was packed and the event was a great success. We are already planning to go to next sessions next year.
