Michael Rosen on World Book Day 2019

We are delighted to announce that we have secured Michael Rosen for our World Book Day event on Thursday 7th March 2019.

He will be making two appearances at the Genesis Cinema, 93-95 Mile End Road, on that day at 10.30am and at 1.30pm, each for one hour.  His talk is suitable for all ages in KS2 and KS3.

There will be a book stall provided by Brick Lane bookshop .

Meeting Michael Rosen and pre-ordering books

In order to ensure that representatives from every school get a chance to meet Michael, we ask that you choose up to FIVE children from your class who can join the queue at the end to get books signed.

We will have pre-signed book plates for other children who want to buy books but can’t get to meet him.

Here is an order form for the list of books suggested by Michael Rosen that will be available for sale at the Brick Lane Bookshop book stall, who are offering £1 discount on all titles.  Pre-orders are invited, and you are welcome to request other titles which are in print.  Please send  this form to Gillian.Harris@towerhamlets.gov.uk by Friday 15th February

Nearer the time, we will invite you to send in questions your pupils might like to ask Michael, and we will choose a range to ensure we get a variety of topics!

For more information about this event, please contact Gillian.harris@towerhamlets.gov.uk.
