A Long Literary Lunch

Diana Neild (Piggity Wiggity) and Philip Webb  

Last Sunday, September 21st, I was privileged to be part of a gathering of writers, publishers, editors, reviewers and booksellers at an event where we were all speaking the same language – ie Books for Children and Young Adults. Titled the Long Literary Lunch and held at the Children’s Bookshop at Kilbirnie, Wellington and organised and supported by the indefatigable John and Ruth McIntyre,  it was a full day (9am to 5-30pm) of panel discussions/ book launches/ seminars/ an address by a national treasure - Jack Lasenby -  and all accompanied by a seemingly never ending supply of delicious food hot and cold drinks and wine.
I took many photos – here are just a few of them.   More to follow in a couple of days...
