Amazing Author visit!
Posted by Aston Manor |
On Tuesday 5th February we were lucky enough to host author Simon Lelic in the Main hall. All of year 7 attended along with some year 8 pupils as well, to listen to Simon talk about his action packed adventure book: The Haven. Simon read a chapter aloud and talked about the book itself and his experience writing it. It was a really fascinating talk and several pupils commented on how much they enjoyed the visit. Once the talk was over, pupils were able to ask Simon questions about anything they wanted and several staff members commented on the great quality and variety of questions the pupils were asking which was excellent. A huge well done and thank you to all pupils who attended for their excellent and impeccable behaviour.
THEN, pupils were given the chance to purchase the book and get it signed by the author himself which was simply wonderful. This was such a great opportunity and the pupils absolutely revelled in it – we later found out that 45 books were purchased and signed which is incredible! Thank you to every single pupil who purchased a book and happy reading!
If you would like to read The Haven yourself, there are now three copies available in the library on request – please be extra careful with these as they’ve been signed by Simon too so are very special to us.
