Wow! What a great event that was.
A room full of people who love books, delicious food, and all for a good cause – what more could you look for on a Saturday afternoon?
I sat at two different tables, and met heaps of interesting people. Unfortunately, I can’t name everyone, but I have to say a special ‘hi’ to birthday girl, Chloe, and to Gabrielle.
After the meal, Don Conroy, Marita Conlon McKenna and I did short readings. David O’Callaghan did a really funny interview with Derek Landy. Ivan O’Brien, Alison Walsh and Claire Hennessy told us all we need to know about publishing.
Huge thanks to Sarah Webb for organising it, and for asking me to join in.
I brought my camera, but I was too busy having fun to take any photographs. There are some here though http://www.davidmaybury.ie/journal/
Lots more events planned for October – Watch this space!
