13/10/22 – John emailed with dates as all schools wanted to do the same as last year (sales 1483)We have arranged a visit from Michael Rosen on 20th September and would love you to support us, as you previously did with our visit from Jeremy Strong. Please could you let me know whether this might be possible – we’d like the ‘shop’ open all day for cash sales by the children and an after school shop for children with their parents. I suspect there will be a huge response and lots of staff sales too !

I know we only have a week left of term – so would really like to confirm arrangements by Wednesday of next week if at all possible.

This is to confirm that the Roving Bookshop would be delighted to support your visit by Michael Rosen on Wednesday 20th September 2023 to Woodlands School.

As with the Jeremy Strong visit, the Bookshop will arrive at 7:30am to set up, and can open from 8:30am for parents, and for class visits through the school day. The Bookshop will remain open after school as long as required.

Prior to the event we will supply Author Visit Wallets to be given out the day before the visit, for parents to send in cash for their children to buy books, posters advertising the event, and a pdf leaflet with details of Michael’s books and a price guide, to be emailed to parents.

If you have any questions please phone or email. We’ll be in touch again before the event, to confirm the number of wallets required

Thank you so much, John – that’s great. Kelly Duffin is our head of English and I’m copying her in so she has your details.
I am due to retire in July – but hope they will let me back in for the day – so hope to see you then!
