Adopt an Author

9 Feb 2017

An exciting schools initiative which links classes with children’s authors to promote literacy, encourage writing and develop creativity. After 8 weeks of fun email discussions with their adopted author, classes attend a 'Meet your Author' party during the Festival. This year local primary schools Carden, Goldstone, Mile Oak and St Luke's are adopting Guy Bass, Rob Lloyd Jones, Ross Montgomery and Ali Sparkes.
