Norfolk Children's Book Festival

City Academy Norwich students attended the 5th Norfolk Children’s Book Festival at the Cathedral.  This event was organised by Norwich School and saw over 500 students come together to share their love of reading.  The festival aims to promote literacy and a love of books by encouraging the reading of good literature by young people across the county. 

Students heard author talks by best- selling authors Philip Reeve, Ruth Eastham, Jonathan Stroud and Matt Dickinson.  They also attended an interactive illustration workshop about the story of Edith Cavell.  They had the opportunity to meet the authors and get their books signed.
