The Timelines Anthology launch took place on October 19th at the John Rylands library.
The place is simply magical. It was a first for many of us to be reading our story out loud in front of an audience. And I believe the atmospheric rooms were perfect to set the scene of historical stories.
I will not go into details of the day, as there is a really god one on the Manchester Children’s book Festival blog.
Instead I will talk about my personal experience reading my own story.
I was really nervous before, so I seeked advice from an actress friend. And the key, she said, was just enjoy reading my story. She said: ” If you are enjoying yourself, and having a good time, everybody will.”
And I believe this is a really good advice.
