An Evening with Sarah Maria Griffin and Christine Lynn Herman at Waterstones Liverpool

An Evening with Sarah Maria Griffin and Christine Lynn Herman at Waterstones Liverpool

Hi guys!

This is a bit of a delayed post but still an event I wanted to talk about, so here we go!

The week before last, Lauren, Beth, Becky and I (plus Imi and Donna who we met up with at the event) took a trip to Liverpool to see two faves, Sarah Maria Griffin and Christine Lynn Herman. With it only being a few days since we’d got home from YALC, another book event seemed like the perfect way to deal with, well, a book event hangover.

YALC 2019 Haul

YALC 2019 Haul

Since I imagine we won’t get information on the stalls that will be there and giveaways etc until nearer the time, I thought I’d write a bit about the planning I’ve been able to do so far.

Sarah Maria Griffin and Christina Henry event – Waterstones Deansgate

The Tuesday before last, following a heavy YALC hangover, I made my way over to Sarah Maria Griffin and Christina Henry’s tour stop in Manchester. I had already met Sarah at YALC but as Spare and Found Parts is one of my favourite books of the year, I definitely wouldn’t say no to hearing her talk about it – I also didn’t get a chance to meet Christina at YALC so was looking forward to that too!
