At long last, having retrieved the memory stick from the laptop, here are the photos from Tuesday night's Walker Books Party. My own favourite is the one of Allan Ahlberg bending down to speak with Naomi Lewis, with several animated conversations going on behind. Also featured (for the first time on ACHUKA) are the '2 Sues' from Birmingham Schools Library Service, with whom I sat to eat the barbecue meal.
David Lloyd's speech, echoing back to last year's, was once again a wild kind of sonic jamming on the story of a saint. The faces in the crowd of people who had never before witnessed a Lloyd speech were pictures it would have been lovely - but a little too obtrusive - to capture.
