Drop into this blog on Thursday, March
27th 29th, leave a comment * and be in the draw for a copy of this wonderful new book from Australian author, Sue Lawson. Published by Walker Books, it’s about to hit the bookshelves.
Sue is an experienced school visitor and workshop presenter. It’s something that many authors have to do to keep going financially. Some people find it a wonderful, exciting experience and some would rather stay away from the stress of planning the visits and then standing and delivering in front of hundreds of squirming little bodies. (For the record, I love it!)
I think you’ll love Sue’s guest post and will find it useful. For those of us who are always on the lookout for great, tried and true hints to make the visit a roaring success, I also asked Sue a couple of my extra questions on the specifics of a school visit. I’ll post Sue’s answers on Friday, 28th March. KEEP AN EYE OPEN FOR US!
FORGET ME NOT by Sue Lawson
Fiction, but rooted in historical fact – the story of one family’s voyage on the Titanic.
I am filled with the worst feeling. Everyone says it is the safest, most luxurious ship in the world, but something about it is extremely unsettling.
Evelyn Gilmore does not share her brother Thomas s excitement about travelling on the maiden voyage of the luxurious Titanic. For Evelyn the ship is taking her away from everything she knows and loves. For Thomas it is taking him to his new life. How could they know what the trip would bring?
Did you know? April 2012 is the 100th anniversary of the Titanic.
