On Thursday 4th February we were very lucky to host Cathy Cassidy, the top- selling children’s author.DSC_5568

Twelve Hampshire schools joined 120 Thornden pupils for her talk in Thornden Hall. She entertained them with anecdotes of her life and how she was inspired to write. Telling the enthralled audience of her previous careers in journalism and illustration. DSC_5587

DSC_5553The event was supported by P & G Wells Bookseller, who provided her books for sale. The response was so good that they said “this is phenomenal”. They sold out of several titles and had to take orders.

This was a very successful event and we have had nothing but praise and positive feed DSC_5653back. Thank you Cathy and all who supported this event.
