Feb 27th / As World Book Day approaches, we are delighted to announce the title of this year’s Whole School Read: “She is not invisible”, by the award-winning author Marcus Sedgwick.

She-is-Not-Invisible 2

Marcus is a prestigious writer, and has won 30 awards for his writing including the Guardian Children’s Fiction Award and the Blue Peter Award.  He has also been nominated 5 times for the Carnegie Award short list.

 We are very fortunate that later this year Marcus will visit Loreto, and some of our girls will have the opportunity to hear him talk about his career as both a musician and an author.

Our students might also want to exchange their £1 World Book Day token for one of Marcus’ other titles ‘Killing the Dead’, and to hang out with Marcus on Google+ at 6.30 pm on World Book Day.  More details about this and the World Book Day Teenfest can be found here, and also here:
