Jeremy is an author and activist based in Luton. He writes serious books for adults, less serious books for children. His blog, The Earthbound Report, has been recognised as the best green blog in the UK by Vuelio and the UK Blog Awards.
Luton’s first literature festival is taking place on September 24th. There are workshops, readings and opportunities to meet authors – including Zanib Mian (Planet Omar), Steve Cole (Swarm Rising), and Luton’s own Sharna Jackson (High Rise Mysteries). Check out the list and see if there’s something you want to book in for.
I’ll be there too, at the authors, writers and illustrator’s fair in the Central Library, 11am – 6pm. This bit you don’t need to book in for, you just drop in for as long as you like. I’ll be there with a pop-up badge shop, so you can make a Max Counts to a Million themed badge to take away. There will be plenty of copies of Max around too if you want a signed copy, or just come and ask questions and have a chat.
Thanks to everyone who came along to the Max Counts to a Million event at the Greenbelt Festival!
We had a good turnout at the Ta-Dah! family tent, where we worked out how long it would take to count to a million – with some epic maths. We heard some stories from the book, had a go at doing some weird and wonderful writing of our own, and then I did some signing over at the book tent.
I’m doing two local library events during the Easter holidays. We’ll do some readings, some little activities, some Q+A stuff, all family friendly and suitable for all ages. Both are free and you can drop in on the day. Come along!
Event one is at Luton Central Libary on Monday 11th of April:
Max Counts to a Million is on tour this week – a blog tour. What’s a blog tour, you may ask? It’s when a series of bloggers pass the baton from one to the next, taking it in turns to write about something. It gets you a series of perspectives on the same thing, a diversity of content from relevant enthusiasts.
In this case, it’s some of Britain’s finest teachers, librarians and children’s book champions.
I’ll round up all the links at the end of the week:
