It was a pleasure to welcome three children’s authors to the school as part of the Author Assemble national tour. Organised in partnership with The Book Shop Kibworth, we welcomed Claire Fayers, Marianne Levy and Kieran Crowley. The authors spent the afternoon with the children from years three, four, five and six sharing the inspiration behind their stories and answering the children’s questions about the process of planning, writing and editing a book.
