Appledore Book Festival with Lisa Williamson

A terrific author session with Lisa Williamson this morning with Appledore Book Festival

Lisa spoke about her school life, then how she started writing after a career in acting and the theatre

(look out for Lisa in television advertising roles)

When she was working for the Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS) an idea formed for writing her first book

The Art of Being Normal went on to win the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize for best older fiction

We have all of Lisa’s books here in GTS library

As she’s one of our most popular authors you can reserve a book now!

“Year 9 pupils asked so many interesting and intelligent questions” said Lisa

Each question gained a ticket in the pencil case of dreams

Peter Knott was the winner of a personalised copy

Lisa revealed that she is writing a new book so I’m adding it to our wish list

It was great to meet Lisa and thank you Year 9 for making her so welcome at GTS
