Southern Schools Book Awards a Hit!
Cobham Hall’s Southern School Book Awards Book Club was thrilled this weekend to learn that their favourite of the shortlisted books, Paper Butterflies by Lisa Heathfield, was the chosen winner at the Award Ceremony held at Roedean.
The Book Club met regularly to discuss the shortlisted books before attending the Ceremony, along with Librarian Mrs Jakso. The girls enjoyed the evening event, where they got to hear from the shortlisted authors, as well as see a demonstration from illustrator Chris Riddell. As well as hearing from the authors and celebrating the winning book, the girls also had the chance to purchase books and have them signed. Speaking afterwards, Year 9 pupil Damilola commented that the event was “a great opportunity to better my writing skills with advice from experienced and best-selling authors.”
