It was very exciting to be commissioned by Hodder Headline to write three books of memoirs about my days as a young teacher in the Yorkshire Dales. The first title in the series, All Teachers Great and Small was published in hardback in summer 2011 and in paperback a few weeks ago, but the next event is the publication of book 2: ALL TEACHERS WISE AND WONDERFUL.
The book will be launched in hardback on Saturday July 7th in my local independent bookshop, Hoppers of Malton (Malton is between York and Scarborough if you don’t know it). Like last year we will be transforming the shop with a party atmosphere from 10am – 2pm and, courtesy of the publishers, will be handing out complimentary Prosecco and nibbles. There will also be some special cakes from the local patisserie, all free, created by one of the main characters in the book!
Why not come along and enjoy this special event. You can meet the author, Andy Seed, enjoy the buzz and, most importantly, be one of the first people anywhere to get a signed copy of ‘ATWAW’ at a special discount price. If you are a friend or former pupil there might be a cheeky surprise too… who knows just who is featured in this book!
Malton is a lovely old-fashioned market town surrounded by attractive countryside too, so why not come along and make a day of it. Here are some pictures of last year’s launch of book 1, plus the cover of the new one:
