Teenage sex. Kids taking drugs. It's all happening at Blackwell's.

At least, it was last night when Melvin Burgess took centre stage at a Manchester Salon discussion about writing teenage fiction.

Bookwitch has this excellent write-up of the evening, which includes fried gold, such as:

"I should have known better than to incite Melvin Burgess to canoodle with the Gruffalo."

"Melvin looked pretty in pink, which is a refreshing colour on a man."

And, of course, photographic evidence of Melvin and the Gruffalo. You'll have to click through for that.

Thanks must go to Melvin for being brilliant, to the Salon for providing such an interesting debate and to everyone for coming along.
