Jessica Townsend - The Calling of Morrigan Crow
Nightingales and Owls Class visited Godolphin School today (4th October 2018) and met the author Jessica Townsend.  This was the first in a  number of planned talks to be given by Jessica promoting her new book - The Calling of Morrigan Crow.  We were lucky enough to be able to buy copies of the book before it is on sale generally.  Our sneak preview left excited children brandishing their own personalized copies, eager to read on, having gained an insight into some of Jessica's characters and what inspired them.
