Thought Bubble Plans Mass Book Crossing

The Leeds Thought Bubble festival team have announced this year's event will run from the 20 - 22 November, with a one day convention event on Saturday 21st at Saviles Hall Leeds, England.

"Throughout this year's event we will hold workshops, talks, comic related film screenings and a huge book crossing," says Thought Bubble director Lisa Wood. Book crossing, which began in 2001, is of course the practice of leaving a book in a public place to be picked up and read by others (more info on www.bookcrossing.com).

"In our 2009 book crossing we'll attempt to turn Leeds in to one massive comic store, by leaving graphic novels all around the city for people to pick up in our goal to promote literacy though sequential art.

Thought Bubble,, which attracted some 1600 fans in 2008, is a non-profit making organisation dedicated to spreading the word of comics and manga though free workshops for children and adults and other comic related activities.
