Ely College celebrates World Book Day with our favourite authors

We've had an amazing #WorldBookDay! Not only did every Year 7 get a #freebook this week & every student get their #wbdvoucher but we were also joined by children's author Julian Sedgwick for an amazing talk, multiple book signings (due to sheer demand) & a fabulous creative workshop!

We have links with some AMAZING authors & we're always so honored when they visit. Regency author @Peter James Bowman very kindly donated some stunning vintage maps earlier this year & last week we welcomed Inbali Iserles into Bishop Laney as part of a Royal Literary Fund academic writing workshop.

Today at the end of Julian's creative writing workshop, one lucky winner won...🥁🥁🥁 ...a KINDLE! Kindly donated to the school with the aim of awarding it to the best creative ghost story... but they were ALL soooo good so we had to pick from a hat!👏🏽 An amazing day THANKS to so many kind people! #Meridian Trust
