Here's the first of the last of HOT AIR material I collected over the course of the festival.
I know, I know, it's a bit late. But I had to launch a book this week!
As you can tell from the tittering, people were quite delighted with Lawson, who seemed surprised, muttering about how "no one ever had him read."
He proceeded to give a rapid-fire career retrospective of his five books of poetry for children and adults.
Good stuff, even a week or so later.
More to come, dear HOT AIR devotees...
