The Meet Up

Year Nine at Cardinal Newman finally got to meet their adopted author Patrice Lawrence! From their letters, it was obvious there was increasing excitement about their planned meeting as the weeks went by. Screen Shot 2019-07-02 at 13.29.24

The party was no disappointment. The class and Patrice started things off with an impressive amount of takeaway pizza, and then Patrice gave a talk about how and why she became a writer.

It was so fascinating to hear all about her roots, and about how she felt when she was the same age as her Adopters. A particularly highlight was when Patrice read from her teenage diary!

Patrice also signed all Year Nine’s copies of “Orange Boy”.

At the end of the afternoon, Year Nine presented Patrice with a card to say thank you for all her wonderful letters:

We’ve loved reading all of your letters too. Thank you for being a part of Adopt an Author 2019, CNCS!
