World Book Day 2022

We are delighted to announce that Rashmi Sirdeshpande, author of one of the World Book Day books amongst many others, will be our headline act for World Book Day 2022 – Thursday 3rd March 2022

We are aiming to put on two live events this year. Rashmi will be at the Genesis Cinema for two events – 10.30am to 11.30am and 1.30pm to 2.30pm and will sign copies of her books after each event.

Rashmi is a British Indian who started out as a lawyer before realising her much better potential as a writer of exciting stories and intriguing non-fiction books for children!  Her non-fiction books include “GOOD NEWS: Why the World Is Not As Bad As You Think”, shortlisted for the Blue Peter Book Awards 2022, “Never Teach a Stegosaurus To Do Sums”, shortlisted for the Sainsbury’s Book Awards 2021, How to Change the World and How to be Extraordinary which detail amazing things women, men and children from many different backgrounds have achieved.  Her new book all about growth mindset and semi-autobiographical, “Yes, You Can, Cow!”, will be hot of the press at the time of her talks.

Her talk is suitable for KS2 and KS3.
