New author, Ellie Danes, visits the library

Tuesday 06 November 2012

Children’s author Ellie Danes came to talk to two Year 7 classes about her first novel Lolly Luck, a delightful story of a young girl Lolly who is usually the luckiest person ever, but whose luck seems to run out when her dad loses his job and the family home. Then she overhears a secret that will make sure her life is never the same again. The character of Lolly and her life, the author explained, was based on her own childhood experiences. Ellie had her audience gripped by her entertaining talk which included a short film, available on YouTube. There was time at the end of students to buy copies and have them signed and dedicated to them by the author.
