Day three of the festival brings the Coventry Inspiration Book Awards to the city along with our award winning authors.
I’m ‘fresh’ home from the awards ceremony, still on a high from giving a speech for Sir Quentin Blake, but I have also met some other amazing people today and so have the children in Coventry!
I stewarded a first for the festival an event at Coffee Tots with Rhonda Armitage and Layn Marlow for their Inspiration Book Award winning A Very Strange Creature. The children loved acting out the story, singing songs and doing crafts with Layn and Rhonda and I enjoyed hosting them for the day and also ‘doing the sights’ yes, we do have some in Coventry and it’s nice seeing it through someone else’s eyes!
With thanks to the fabulous Stacey Raven Photography for the pictures.
I met Levi Pinfold at the station with his steward Julia, they had a great day at Parkgate primary and they have shared a few pictures with us…
Helen Watt enjoyed her event at Tile Hill Wood, and here’s a sneaky peek at the gifts our authors get!
And the awards…what can we say about those? Well they are always an inspiration, the readers talking about each book as ever did us proud, what a great city of readers we belong to! Our very own Alex T Smith live tweeted through the ceremony so you can find pictures of all the winners and some comments from authors in our tweet feed!
What an amazing day and evening! And it is still going on! Keep following us on Twitter: @literallycov #covbkfest
