Haringey Children's Literature Festival

A wonderful opportunity for younger readers has been brought to my attention and I'm thrilled to share it with you all.

The Haringey Children's Literature Festival is a FREE festival in Haringey, London. It's goal is to promote literacy in children and young adults through this interactive and fun environment. Both authors and illustrators are attending this event. You can find a list of their names at the Festival's Facebook Page!
Though I don't live in England, those who do and are near the London area, hop on the train and zip to Haringey between September 10-17th! The festival is completely free and has all sorts of exciting literacy-related activities (a giant floor word search is just one among many!). Games like Pictionary, Boggle (my favorite), and Hangman will be available as well as opportunities to meet authors and get some signatures (hoping they sell for hundreds of dollars/pounds someday in the far future).

Take a look at the website for the Haringey Children's Literature Festival. I think it's a wonderful opportunity and I might just hop on the next plane across the Atlantic (or just stay home and study for

If you do choose to attend on one or all of the days, I'd love to hear your thoughts about the festival! Cheers!
