Introducing Literally Book Festival Day Four

Today has started with some wonderful school events including Barbara Mitchelhill at Sacred Heart. We had a brilliant morning learning, reading and enjoying and making sure all the children were cured with Victorian cures for their ailments! There was dirty socks around the neck for a cold and filling teeth with rubber. We had a lot of fun!


Over on Twitter there was lots of thanks from schools and authors for their great days out:

This is one of my favourites!
Author Ellie Irving tweeted this picture and caption!

Spotted on the walls of a pub toilet. Ooh, the people of Coventry are sticklers for grammar!
Ellie also tweeted that she had enjoyed her event and that the children had great imaginations!

Bablake school had a visit from Alex Gutteridge, they tweeted this pic of Alex and the librarians! (wouldn’t that be a great band name!)
