What a fabulous start to this year's competition of the Kids' Lit Quiz! It was as tight as a coal seam!! The winner was Durham Johnston 2 followed by Durham Johnston 1 followed by Yarm 2. Only half a point separated each team. Our authors tonight were Linda Strachan and Lucy Coats, and with Steve from the Seven Stories bookshop they won the contest with the librarians. Book prizes were courtesy of Scholastic and the venue was Gosforth Central Middle School, our venue now for the past few years. Reading was the winner and adults went away amazed at the literary knowledge the kids displayed.
Congratulations Josie, Joshua, Sophie and Benedict.
