I had a fantastic time at #YASHOT in Uxbridge over the weekend. Here are some of the brilliant sessions I attended and a few pictures of the events, which took place in Uxbridge Waterstones and the Town hall. I also managed to spot The Boy Who Sailed the Ocean by Lara Williamson in Waterstones Uxbridge… Thanks to Alexia Casale for organising such an amazing event
