My next few months are full of exciting visits all over the country. I’ll try to post details here as soon as I can!
In the meantime, here are a couple of the things I’ve been getting up to…
- Launch of a new book club at Waterstones
In our first meeting, we discussed Wonder by R J Palacio. We also made clay figures and had fun describing their personalities. Thank you for coming along, lovely readers. I’m really looking forward to our next meeting!
Thanks also to Joanne Wilson and Devon Libraries for inviting me to host a writing workshop at Newton Abbot Library at the end of February. I loved the stories everyone came up with and I hope I’ll get to see how some of them develop!
Some of my visits were mentioned in the Herald Express, 8th March 2011.
Newton Abbot College library staff Jo Slade and Emma Reed arranged a fun packed day of activities for students on World Book Day (Thursday 3rd March). For the fourth year running, local author for teenagers Luisa Plaja, came in for most of the day. She gave a formal talk, played a group story telling activity and then ate in the library in the informal event called “Lunch with Luisa”! Poor Luisa found it hard to eat her sandwich as so many questions were fired at her by very enthusiastic fans and budding writers. Year 8 student Dylan Rudling said “It was really exciting to meet a real life author and to see how they juggle their every-day lives.”
And here I am with awesome Amber from Newton Abbot College:
