I spent the morning introducing children’s writer Jacqueline Wilson to a school full of 7-11 yr olds. I’ve never seen that many kids so excited about meeting a writer before – and who says books aren’t cool!
Unfortunately I left my camera on a table in a cafe after the event. Doh! Hopefully I’ll be able to track it down and post some photos to the blog from the event.
It’s always a little odd meeting famous writers. They are never quite as you expect them to be. It’s especialy odd when you get to know somebody through their writing – you build up an image of how they look and behave based on the chracters they write. The odd thing is that even when there are nothing alike there is always something of a person reflected in their writing.
