On Tuesday March 19th (just after World Book Day - March 7th) we will welcome Carnegie prize-nominated author, Lauren James to The Priory School. Lauren will be talking about her writing journey to all of year 8 & 9, reading from her latest book and answering questions. Lauren’s books have sold over fifty thousand copies in the UK alone, and have been translated into five languages worldwide. She is a young, inspirational author (she sold the rights to her first novel aged just 21) and she is a passionate advocate of STEM. Her novels are Young Adult dystopian, sci-fi thrillers and all of them feature female scientists in prominent roles.
On the day itself, from 3.15pm-4pm Lauren will be signing books. This means students across all year groups can drop in and meet her in person. Lauren’s novels will be available to order via ParentPay from Wednesday 6th Feb until Friday 8th March. Thanks to Waterstones, Shrewsbury we can offer a 20% discount off the RRP.
