Just recently I wrote about my discovery of YALitChat and how cool it is to chat in live time via Twitter to other like minded souls.

So it was exciting to discover that another Twitter based chat group is about to start up.   To run every other Sunday, the UK based Federation of Children’s Book Groups, will launch a Twitter chat group on March 20th.  Using #fcbgbkgrp, the announcment on the FCBG website states that the aim of the forum is

to give librarians, teachers, bloggers and anyone else interested in children’s books the chance to talk about new releases, favourites and anything else of interest surrounding children’s books.

To be held between 8 and 9pm UK time, the local time in Melbourne may not be all that convenient, but then again a 7.00am Monday morning Twitter chat may just be the way for YA book lovers to start their week!!

Check The World Clock – Time Zone Converter to help calculate when this live Twitter chat will be held in your area.
