UKYA Extravaganza

Today I attended the first ever UKYA Extravaganza event, put together by Emma Pass and Kerry Drewery and hosted by Waterstones Birmingham Hight Street.

As you may know, I’ve been a huge advocate for UKYA in the past few years so I love to attend events whenever I can. I really hope there are lots more UKYA Extravaganza events in the future because I loved today an awful lot!

Scattered throughout the event were author panels and the event offered a great chance to catch up with friends – both new and old. I also came away with a lot more books than I took!

Events such as this one are a perfect example of the importance of community cohesion. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming, and I think today was a credit to our lovely community. It was so nice to see people getting along so well and sharing their love for books.

No matter your age, gender or how you look, you’ll be welcomed with open arms and we really did show that today.

Here’s to many more UKYA Extravaganza’s in the future!
