World Book Day

How was your World Book Day?

We at Templar  were kept busy with many of our fantastic authors and illustrators spending the day with young fans.
Debbie explaining how she used
Samuel Pepys' diary for her research

Part of the Publicity team set out with Wickedness author Deborah White to Stratford Foyles for an entertaining lesson in history. As the novel is a time stretch novel, with 400 years seperating the two flame-haired heroines of each tale, Debbie explained to the children how she went about researching her novel.

From handing around a candle that is supposed to be Jesus' authentic scent, to producing disgusted squeels with gross pictures of mummies, Deborah thrilled and captured the minds (young and old) of her audience.

We all left the event feeling a little wiser and desperate to pick up Wickedness again!

If you're in London this Saturday then Templar is returning to Foyles for another exciting event.

Come along and meet 'The Deceptionist' from Illusionology, he will be magically appearing at Waterstones in the O2 Centre, Finchley Road, at 12.30pm, and then popping up at 3pm at Foyles, Westfield Stratford. Events are free, so prepare to be amazed, astounded and astonished!
