World Book Day 2019

On Thursday 7th March it’s World Book Day – that special day when people all over the globe celebrate books and reading (and perhaps also writing). And UK primary schools in particular encourage students to come in dressed as their favourite book character (or at least the one that their parents/carers can manage to find/construct a costume for… 😉 ). They also plan special events to promote all things book-ish. 📖📚📗
My local primary school has chosen a very special theme this year – knights and castles. 👑🏰 I wonder why that might be? 🤔 Maybe it’s something to do with the guest they’ve invited?…
Yes, I’m thrilled to be visiting Lees Primary School in West Yorkshire on Thursday to celebrate World Book Day with the Key Stage 2 pupils. I’ve been asked to chat about my books (and of course my main characters), read from ‘The Order of the White Boar’ and answer questions at a special assembly in the afternoon, followed by a book signing session to which parents/carers and members of the public are very welcome.
Copies of ‘The Order of the White Boar‘, its sequel ‘The King’s Man’ (both suitable for ages 10+) and the charity anthology ‘Grant Me the Carving of My Name‘ will be available to buy. (Discount vouchers will be available for all local schoolchildren.)
If you’re in the area from around 3.15pm, please do call in – it would be lovely to see you! 😁
