AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR MALORIE BLACKMAN OBE TO VISIT SCHOOL

We are thrilled to announce that award-winning author Malorie Blackman OBE has selected our school as a venue for her tour. Malorie will be visiting Big School on Wednesday 10th May, 1.30pm – 3pm where she will speak to students in Years 8, 9 and 10 about her award-winning books and life as a writer.

Malorie’s books include the Children’s Book Award winning dystopian novel series, Noughts and Crosses. Her many published novels cover a range of subjects for children and teens, addressing diverse and sensitive issues. In the Queen’s Birthday Honours in 2008, Malorie received an OBE for her contribution to children’s literature and was awarded the prestigious Eleanor Farjeon Award in 2005.

Malorie was selected as the Waterstones Children’s Laureate in June 2013, taking over from Julia Donaldson. The title of Children’s Laureate is awarded to an acclaimed author in acknowledgment of their outstanding contribution to their field, and Malorie was the eighth recipient of this honour. In light of her outstanding contributions to children’s literature we can think of no better role model to inspire our community to read and write creatively.

Venue: Big School, 1.30pm – 3pm
