My month in books & bakes – March

my month in books & bakes

What’s happened in March?

My first bookish outing was to Waterstone’s in Birmingham for an evening with Joanna Cannon, author of The Trouble with Goats and Sheep. I hadn’t read the book at this point but it was still really interesting to hear about Joanna’s writing process and her journey to publication.

I also attended my first London author / blogger meet up organised by the lovely Kim the Bookworm and Holly Martin.Β  It was a great day and a fab turnout of bloggers and authors.

    This looks like a busy month! πŸ™‚ I wish we had more book events around here, but this weekend I’ll be making a trip to my first book event, Les Escales du Livres, I can’t wait, even though I already know all the authors and books will be French…
