As part of joining in with the Coventry Book Festival Monday 10 June - Friday 14 June we attended two author events and hosted our own; we had a brilliant week! On Tuesday 11 June we saw Cathy Cassidy in action at Sidney Stringer Academy, she was inspirational and above all had the audience wanting to go off and aspire to be authors! .
On Wednesday 12 June we were back to Sidney Stringer again: this time to meet award winning Sarah Crossan. Sarah won a category in the Coventry Inspiration Book Awards earlier this year with her great book, â€˜The Weight of Waterâ€™, which follows the story of young Kasienka coming to Coventry from Poland with her Mama. She has to cope with settling in to a new school and generally fitting in, as well as trying to find her Tata. Miss Barton Librarian
