Indie Authors Support Local School Open Day

Indie authors gathered on Saturday 10th February at the Assumption Convent School in Germiston to celebrate their first School’s Reading Road Show

The Headmistress Mrs Debby Zambon was super keen to host the authors as part of their Open Day Celebrations to emphasize to parents the importance the school places on reading. In fact, Jann Weeratunga, author of the Polly’s PIralympics Books Series, says, “These girls devour books, they are copious readers and it was fantastic being able to share our books with them.”

The emphasis on the day was to show pupils present and future that authors are real people, approachable and you can talk to them, ask questions about their books and let them know what you think of their books.

Present on the day were:

Bhubesikazi Sibisi

Corne Groenewald

Christina Harman

Conny Oberrauter

Dolores Oldjohn

Fatuma Abdullah

Hinesh Vithal

Kim Hunter

Leandri Geldenhuys

Robbie Cheadle

Sabina Lehmacher

Soraya Hendricks

Tanya De Villiers and

Jann Weeratunga

 

The Schools Reading Road Show is available to any school in Gauteng. The authors present their books either through reading, plays or activities for the children and put life into books and reading for children.

 

Being able to read holds the key to a child’s future, enable them.
