Dear Parent/Carer

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.

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

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.

Yours sincerely

Mrs J. Cairns
