I can finally announce that I’ll be speaking at the Edinburgh International Book Festival this August (whoop whoop).
If you’re in and around Edinburgh on 17th August, come on by. Our event is at 5pm in Charlotte Square Gardens. I’ll be talking with another debut author, Jane Elson, whose novel is called ‘A Room Full of Chocolate’. It’s a gorgeous story about a girl called Grace who has to go to live with her grandfather when her mother finds a lump and needs treatment. Although Grace is worried and doesn’t want to stay with her grumpy grandfather, she meets a new friend and a pig called Claude. It’s more about wellies and friendships than chocolate but it’s lovely and so is Jane.
Tickets to our event are £4.50 and are available here: http://edinburghfestival.list.co.uk/event/415094-dreams-of-escape-with-jane-elson-and-emma-shevah/
There’s so much going on in Edinburgh in August: fringe theatre, comedy, music, book talk – it’s the place to be. I’ve only been once and that was years ago but we had a great time so I’m really looking forward to going again. Come if you can. I’d love to see you there.
