There was a lot of good energy at this event, because the town is lovely, the people down to earth yet creative, and open to new ideas. Over 200 people came to the town square, but it was my book, the first part in the Saltamontes Chronicles, Escape from Darkness, which was in the starring role – a book which was well-known and loved by the children and young adults there. Can there be any greater pleasure for a writer than to see children who, thanks to my book, have discovered the joy of reading and who have learned by heart quotes that I wrote?
I would like to show my deepest appreciation to Anna Margas and Danuta Twerd from School No 1 in Żnin for organising such a wonderful, spectacular event and for being such lovely hosts. It’s such a great honour for me to be invited to such occasions.
