Report from Ms Skea
On Thursday 27th October the Rapid Readers Cookie Club enjoyed a visit from the Catalyst Book Award 2011 shortlisted author Keren David.
Keren gave a very interesting talk about her book ‘When I was Joe’ and also gave tips about creative writing and how to get into journalism. She also gave a gripping account of witnessing a knife crime.
The pupils asked Keren lots of interesting questions and are now enthused to read Keren’s other books ‘Lia’s Guide To Winning The Lottery’ and the sequel to ‘When I was Joe’ called ‘Almost True’.
One of the pupils commented after the event that it was fantastic to meet a real life author!
Thanks to Catalyst and Keren David for this great opportunity!
