We are very excited to inform you that the author Caroline Lawrence will be visiting Canon Slade School on Monday 27th February period 4 in the chapel. Caroline’s visit is part of our Book Week activities and it is wonderful that year 7 have been selected to take part in this author event.
A survey carried out by the Society of Authors reported that 99.4% of schools considered author visits to be a high priority and valuable in encouraging reading for pleasure and creative writing with 99.5% believing that every student would benefit. From our experience of organising author events students have thoroughly enjoyed the sessions and we are looking forward to Caroline’s presentation. http://www.slideshare.net/TheSocietyofAuthors/cwig-re-author-visits-21-may-2014
Caroline wrote The Roman Mysteries series, which was made into a BBC children’s TV series. She has written many books and they appeal to both boys and girls.
More details about Caroline are available on her fun website http://www.carolinelawrence.com/
Books will be for sale on the day and at the end of the session Caroline will be happy to sign any purchased. To avoid disappointment, we advise PRE-ORDERING in preparation for her visit and an order form is available below.
Please send cash or cheque payable to ‘ebb & flo bookshop’ for the attention of Mrs Cairns.
