World Renowned Author Cathy Cassidy Inspires Students

Added: March 4th, 2014

World famous writer and author Cathy Cassidy paid a visit to Royds Hall Community School on a whirlwind tour promoting her new paperback ‘Coco Caramel’.

As well as all year 7 being present, we were also visited by Reinwood Junior School and Huddersfield Grammar school for this unique event. It is very rare we can get an author of such great reputation visiting school, so this was a fantastic opportunity for students to meet one of the contemporary greats in children’s fiction.

After providing us with her writing hints and tips for creating great stories and giving us some of her biographical background, Cathy also treated us to a short reading from her book which was very well received, particularly by the girls.

This was rounded off with a book signing where students had the opportunity to get their favourite Cathy Cassidy books signed as well as get to meet her up close and personal.

The whole event was a great success and many of the students were delighted to have met Cathy. Hopefully this will inspire some of them to go and become great writers themselves.
