|HANGING WITH PATRICK NESS|
There were lost of teens/students there as well as adults. It was great to hear an author reading from his book, though he said he didn't like to do this, or be read to. It reminded him of how is father, a preacher, would read The Hungry Caterpillar like he was reading a sermon. He read, anyhow, the first three pages of his new book.
Patrick answered questions about this and his other books including: Chaos Walking trilogy and A Monster Calls; as well talking about screen plays, and discussions about The Knife of Never Letting Go film (? watch this space!).
An hour later, we were all queuing up for our books to be signed. I think some parents saw this as great Christmas present opportunity with arms cradling all this books.
I would recommend going to such an event.
Have you been to any? I'd love to know.
