Pageturners & Whatever It Takes

I had another two super events this week. On Tuesday I was part of the Pageturners Festival 2015 organised by Kirklees Library Services. I had a fabulous reception from Y7 pupils at Mirfield Free Grammar & VI Form School in the morning, who put up with me banging on about books despite my sniffles and sore throat. iphone 7 purple leather case Thank you so much!

In the afternoon I met Y3-6 at Birkinshaw Primary. lfc iphone 7 case This was another fab school full of enthusiastic kids and engaged staff who laughed at my feeble jokes. A huge thanks to everyone involved and especially librarian Fiona who drove me from place and treated me to a salad of enormous proportions at lunchtime.

This particular Whatever It Takes event, where 5000 children get to meet authors over the course of a week, has been going for about 10 years. I was delighted to meet all the schools who participated in my sessions on the day, held at Leicester Tigers’ ground (we were not actually on the pitch, you understand – we were up in the grand hospitality suites). Thank you to everyone involved. iphone x case protector Ten out of ten for organisation and a huge WOW for ordering a special print run of Saturday Girl to give to each pupil.
