The editors of The Ultimate Book Guide joined us at JBW 2010 as well as not one, but two much loved children’s writers, former Children’s Laureate, Anne Fine and Carnegie prize winning Meg Rosoff. They shared their favourite books and suggested a treasure trove of new reading.
The totally true storytelling club returned for JBW 2011. We selected some of our favourite writers who revealed true moments of beauty, awkwardness, tragedy and hilarity all packaged in 10-minute stories and told with no notes. JBW 2011 theme was ‘Close Call’.
