I had the pleasure of talking to around 400 young readers and writers, from a dozen schools around Liverpool. It was inspiring to see so much enthusiasm for books and reading, and to hear all about their favourite stories! Here are some of the tweets from the day. If anyone from any of the schools would like to say anything about the visit or my books, or has any more questions for me – just leave me a comment below!
Another wonderful experience for year 5 today, getting to meet SF Said - the author of their class novel 'Varjak Paw'. The children were so excited and inspired to keep reading and writing. Thanks again to @ReadingatLLP @WellesbourneSch @whatSFSaid 📙 🖋 ☺ pic.twitter.com/UZtpX1Wfq5— St Christophers (@ChrissiesSpeke) July 4, 2019
For having the most stickers on their bookmarks 5E were rewarded with a talk by @whatSFSaid. There were a lot of important messages about resilience and perseverance that will inspire our children. Thanks again @whatSFSaid and @WellesbourneSch for having us at your school. pic.twitter.com/JSEfSt5JI1— Broad Square Primary (@Broad_Square) July 4, 2019
