Wow! Last week I found myself in the same book as one of the best-known children’s writers in the world!
The book is the programme for this year’s Auckland Writers Festival, and the famous writer is Jeff Kinney who has sold more than 190 million books about a wimpy kid!
Jeff is coming to Auckland to talk about his writing and kids are welcome as long as they can talk your parents into bringing them along. Tap the secret full-stop at the end of this sentence to find out more. I can’t wait.
There are lots of other wonderful sessions by the authors of children’s books as well. Most of them are on Sunday May 20 and almost all of them are free! Check them out here!
I won’t be doing any sessions for kids at the festival but I will be performing in a poetry show for adults. I think it will be my job is to make people laugh because sometimes poetry is a very serious business.
