Sleigh bells ring, are you listening? Hey. HEY! Are you LISTENING?! Because even though it 100% ’tis the season to curl up by a log fire and read, there are also some pretty cool events going on out there too.


So put your mittens on and have a bookish adventure! Here’s some of our faves:

The YA Salon: Christmas Edition

Join the likes of Non Pratt, Juno Dawson, Holly Bourne, Lisa Williamson and others, talking about the new ‘I’ll Be Home for Christmas’ anthology, but also to scoff some mince pies and feel all festive! Yaas! More info here.
