Manchester Children’s Book Festival 2010

Manchester Children’s Book Festival 2010

As the book festival season settles across the UK, Manchester’s Children’s Book Festival is set to take place from 1st-4th July. Aside from book readings, children’s activities and a chance to meet authors, the festival is challenging as many people as possible to partake in their Readathon by only reading children’s books for the duration of the festival.

So if you’re anywhere near Manchester, be prepared for howls of despair as the populace reaches for their well-thumbed copies of  Harry Potter again, which is well documented as being  more akin to torture than literature. Shouldn’t festival organisers know better?
