Raising aspirations - releasing potential

Year 7 Book Club meet author Cathy Cassidy

Students from the Year 7 Book Club were invited to meet the author Cathy Cassidy at Haberdasher’s Aske Academy in Crayford.

 Cathy spoke to an audience of nearly 400 girls from Bexley schools about what inspired her to write, how she became an author, and how daydreaming can sometimes lead to a rewarding career! She got the girls to take a quiz to discover which of her characters they were most like, encouraged them to visit her website with its interactive blog, competitions and showed them her very own Cathy Cassidy TV YouTube channel.

After taking questions, Cathy signed copies of her books for the girls.

The girls from Blackfen had a wonderful afternoon, enjoyed meeting a famous author and coming away with a signed copy of her new book.  When asked what they liked most about seeing Cathy Cassidy they said:

‘Her talking about her new books and inspirational speech and her signing my book’ Jolie

‘How inspiring she was and how uplifting’ Marie

‘Her telling us about her life and her inspirations’ Sophie

All in all it was a really interesting and rewarding afternoon.
