It was an absolute pleasure to have LD come and visit SNA as part of our reading festival last week. She was a great hit with the students, who were particularly interested to hear LD's author journey and hear about her creative writing processes. Many students were also really excited to chat with LD during breaktime and get their books signed too. Engaging, genuine and fascinating - LD was exceptional for an author visit and I'll be looking to book her again for the future.
