Here are a few things I've got scheduled for this summer!
Thursday 22 June 2017, 10 am - 3 pm: I'll be participating in Timehop: Wordpool's Young Adult Fiction Festival. Blackpool, England.
Friday 28 - Sunday 30 July 2017: I'm a guest at YALC (Young Adult Literature Convention), the UK's YA Lit Con at London Film and Comic Con, London, England.
Friday 4 August 2017, 10 am: I'll be speaking as part of the Pennsylvania Chautauqua's Author Series at the Hall of Philosophy in Mount Gretna, Pennsylvania - on an unusual combination of Rose Under Fire and The Pearl Thief. Rose is included because of its connection to this spring's One Book, One Community choice in Central Pennsylvania. I'm also planning to make a visit to the Mt. Gretna Community Library sometime between 1 and 20 August - date to be confirmed!
Thursday 24 August 2017, 11 am: I'm participating in the Baillie Gifford Schools Programme at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, in a presentation aimed at S1-S3 students on The Pearl Thief and entitled "A Very Scottish Mystery." The full Schools Programme with more information on the session and on all the other participating authors is available here.
