Laura Powell at CCHS and St Mary’s Colchester

We had a lovely day in Colchester on Wednesday with Bloomsbury author Laura Powell.  We visited Colchester County High School for Girls and St Mary’s School for Girls, where Laura talked to Year 8 students about her brilliant books about ancient witchcraft in a modern world. We have signed copies in the shop, if you’re looking for a great Young Adult read. For photos of the events see our Children’s page.

World Book Night 2013

We had a lovely time on Thorpe-le-Soken Station on Tuesday morning, handing out 20 FREE copies of Sophie Hannah’s Little Face. Pictured here is our first happy commuter, John Williams! And if you missed us in the local paper with the lovely train driver Paul Moss – then follow this link http://tinyurl.com/c5ehc5e.  For more information about becoming a giver yourself next year, check out the WBN website www.worldbooknight.org.
