World Book Day
World Book Day is on 7th March this year, just two weeks after half term. We’ll have lots of fun things to do: quizzes, competitions, dressing up, as well as a book fair provided by our lovely friends at Next Page books. Kep an eye on our social media and email for more information!
The book fair will run a little differently this year. We have a World Book Day voucher which can be used against the purchase of books (great to cover that pesky 99p!), and Next Page are once more supplying our books. However, the books we will have to view will be display only copies, and at the end of the week Liz and Julie will collect all your orders and payment and we will then distribute your purchases when they arrive. We will send out an order form just before the book fair and have printed copies for the students to take home, they then give us their order and their payment (card payment will be available) and we will do the rest. There will be books suitable for ages 11 – adult, so this is suitable for sixth form too, and 10% of all sales will be donated to the school. It runs from Monday 4th – Friday 8th March in the library during all our opening hours.
Evening Event, 23rd April, Time TBC
I hinted in the last newsletter about an evening event coming up. We’re extremely excited to tell you that Robin Ince, best known for hosting Radio 4’s Infinite Monkey Cage with Professor Brian Cox, will be coming to HBS. Robin has a long career in standup comedy, regularly appears on Radio 4, and has written several books about subjects such as mental health, curiosity, and his own love of books. Last year he had two separate shows at the Edinburgh Fringe, won Celebrity Mastermind, and is a two-time winner of Celebrity Pointless. He’s a delightful and engaging speaker, so we are looking forward to welcoming him into our little library. Look out for more information on social media and email.
