Keen readers from Brooke Weston were invited to sister school Corby Business Academy to meet ‘Kisses for Lula’ author Samantha Mackintosh. The event, to mark World Book Day, was a pink-themed extravaganza with a talk, nibbles and quizzes.
Librarian Mrs Adams said: ‘She did a brilliant author talk and spoke a great deal about growing up, and her first boyfriend. Then she did a quiz - you had to say what kind of person you were and there were five options each time and at the end of the quiz she compared you to a character from her book. The students really enjoyed themselves and said it was a thrill meeting a real author.’
