I took part in the "Our Say-Birtley" world book night event. I took a couple of my friends and they both thought it was great how we got to face time the Author of our book- Lucy Diamond. We also enjoyed the crafts area as we really love monkeys and made masks so people knew we were best Friends!

"Our Say - Birtley" planned and hosted a World Book Night event at Birtley Library for their friends. As well as the book giveaway, the teens took part in a quick facetime chat with the author of our book, Lucy Diamond. The event also included: karaoke, funky giraffe crafts, quizzes, live music from a group member Lily's band, games and ... eventual pizza!!
