VISITING AUTHOR ENLIGHTENS ADDERLEY

The children were truly inspired by best-selling children's author Vivian French yesterday! They all dressed up as princes and princesses to engage in an enlightening talk by Vivian followed by a book signing! Untitled

Children learned that as a child Vivian also struggled with spelling and handwriting (and loved chatting a lot!) but none of this stopped her from becoming a very successful writer!

Children were able to identify which of Vivian's books they have already read and why they liked them so much and also which of her new books they couldn't wait to read!

Later, the reporters met up with Vivian for a radio interview to be broadcasted on Radio Adderley!

This was followed by a personal book signing...

After the book signing, Vivian had a tour of our school library!

This is what she very kindly wrote into our Visitors Book:

"What a fabulous school! I had the best time... There's such a wonderful 'CAN DO...WITH A SMILE' feeling here! Thank you all so very much for having me to visit, and for making me feel so very welcome." - Vivian French

The school has purchased all of Vivian's latest titles to allow the children to borrow them from the school library!
