Well, there is a first for everything! Having run numerous author events in school, the Library Ladiez decided to accept an invitation to take a party to BGS to hear the present Children’s Laureate and award winning author Malorie Blackman speak. So we took 25 students from Y8 – 12 up to a very different school to our own for a lovely literary event, with tea!
This is what Proby, Y8 had to say:
Yesterday I went to see Malorie Blackman at Bristol Grammar School where she talked about her career as a writer. She is a mature, happy, funny lady with deep thoughts about how things happening around the world will affect the future. As a result of her great mind she has written 61 inspiring books (I’ve read Trust Me and Hacker). Malorie Blackman has so many sides to her personality that she writes books in many different ways. She even uses her dreams and nightmares! Not everything went to plan because when publishers didn’t like her stories she nearly gave up, but luckily she didn’t because her family strongly believed in her and supported her. She really is a special person!
