10 Nov Author Visit – SF Said
We were incredibly fortunate this week to receive a visit at The Winns from successful author SF Said. SF has written a number of novels for children and young adults, including Tyger, Phoenix and Varjak Paw. SF talked about how he used books he read as a child and how he used reading as an escape when he was growing up. SF reminded our children that they are all writers, before explaining how he had to show perseverance and resilience to get his writing published; he was knocked back by publishers 90 times! It was fantastic for our children to see and hear SF’s experiences. Hopefully he will have inspired some budding authors amongst us. A huge thank you to SF from all of us at The Winns for giving up some of his time to come in to talk the children and to sign some copies of his books.
