Tim at The Hay Festival 2015
Tuesday, 26th May, 2015
Tim has just returned from this year’s Hay Festival where he took part in two events.
Tim’s solo event on Friday 22 May was part of the Schools programme. The audience of about 650 heard Tim talk about Night Runner and Game Changer, give advice to keen writers in the audience on how to hook and grip the reader, and then read an extract from Night Runner. There then followed a question and answer session.
The following day Tim joined fellow authors Ken Oppel and Sam Hepburn on The Starlight Stage in a panel event chaired by Daniel Hahn. They discussed the secret of keeping their readers turning the pages. Tim used Game Changer to illustrate his points.
Tim said, ‘Hay was wonderful. It’s always such a friendly place to come. Both events went really well. The audiences were lively and responsive and I had some great questions.’
