Despite being quite local to me, this was my first visit to Ringwood School. Kicked off over lunchtime by awarding certificates to Year 7 Reading Champions. Each also received a signed copy of one of my EDGE books. Then two back to back sessions with Year 7 groups (approx 120 in each) during which I spoke about some of the true stories behind my books and characters. Ended the day with a book signing. My thanks to librarian Sara Blincoe (and her husband) for making me feel welcome and organising the day. School had a great atmosphere, and terrific library!
Sales of Daniel at this event qualified for my £1 per copy donation, raising an additional £23 for the Teenage Cancer Trust – and the school is also holding a raffle too for another signed copy. Fantastic.
