Culture Bite Festival FinalE
Senior Librarian, Mrs Underwood, attended the Culture Bite Festival Finale on 31st October at Uxbridge Civic Centre.
The guest speaker, author/illustrator, Chris Riddell, spoke about the importance of libraries in schools and within the public sector. Chris is currently working with government ministers to raise the profile of school libraries. He was very impressed to hear that Northwood School Library is a thriving resource.
Chris demonstrated his fantastic artistic skills by characterising other guest speakers as they spoke using humorous touches to his drawings. His novels, the Gothic Girl series, is very popular with children.
Mrs Underwood said "Northwood School have been privileged to be a part of the Festival that has brought inspiring authors to our students. We would like to thank Hillingdon’s Library Service for arranging access to an array of talented inspiring speakers".
