Book Launch In The Library - Cathy Cassidy's New Series!


On Thursday, 15th June a very exciting book launch took place nationwide/worldwide to promote the new book Love from Lexi, written by much-loved author, Cathy Cassidy.  With such an exciting book due to be released, we too took the opportunity to hold our very own book launch. Cathy, who has visited QEGS in previous years, kept in touch with the school library throughout her time writing her new book, including the build up to the launch, ensuring that QEGS' library had 2 copies of her book available for the big day/launch.

The book launch, which ran through lunchtime, allowed our pupils to view the new book, read extracts, pick up a bookmark (specially created in our Bookmark Club) nibble on a cupcake, and generally chat about the first book in the series of Lost and Found, a good starting point for those who are new readers of Cathy’s books.  We also saw lots of Cathy's fans from Yr10 and 11 who were also curious to take a peek - Cathy's books were first published in 2004, have always attracted a wide audience, and continue to attract readers everywhere.

We are extremely grateful to the author, and to Penguin Book Publishers who helped to make this book launch a very special and exciting one indeed.   Plans are now under way for our next book launch, which will be next term in the new academic year.
