Inaugural community book festival – Books Unbound – at The Godolphin & Latymer School 25 & 26 June 2016
The Godolphin & Latymer School is holding its first ever community book festival over the weekend of Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 June.
This new event will raise money for local charity Doorstep Library, for literacy initiatives in local state primary school Lena Gardens and also for the Godolphin & Latymer Bursary Fund.
The festival programme is designed to appeal to a wide audience. The topics of Saturday’s sessions range from popular fiction to food and military history; while Sunday will appeal more to teenagers, young-adults and parents.
Session highlights include:
• Former Blue Peter presenter, actress and broadcaster Janet Ellis, speaking about her debut novel The Butcher’s Hook
• Psychologist and behavioural scientist, Dr. Linda Papadopoulos, (from Big Brother on Channel 4, ITV’s LK Today, The Wright Stuff on Channel 5 ) on the increased pressures women are undergoing in their life and careers
• Helena Coggan, inspiring young author of The Catalyst, written when she was just 13 years old
• Wellbeing expert and contributing editor to Vogue magazine, Calgary Avansino, author of Keep It Real: Create a Healthy, Balanced and Delicious Life – For You and Your Family
