Newington College is running a three day literature festival for its students, beginning tomorrow (March 30th) and running till Friday, April 1st.
There is an impressive line-up with over 70 speakers, including journalists, writers, poets, playwrights, historians, scientists, novelists, and more. Also attending, is our own, Tony Thompson, author of Vampires: The Un-history of the Undead and Shakespeare: The Most Famous Man in London.
This festival is a great idea! It’s a fantastic way to encourage young people’s passion for books and literature.
Unfortunately, the festival is a private event for students and parents. But if your school is interested in having one of our authors or illustrators make a guest presentation or workshop at your school then please visit our authors/illustrations page at our website to find more information. We have a wonderful array of authors and illustrators who have extensive experience with school and festival presentations/workshops. Many of our authors are excellent at engaging young audiences and will enrich learning by adding a fresh and creative atmosphere to the classroom.
