At Sacred Heart we work hard to provide an engaging and entertaining program of author events throughout the year. Using our connections with local bookshops and working directly with publishers, students are able to meet authors, gain an insight into writing careers and learn about their processes from initial ideas all the way to published novels. Students are also able to get signed copies of books either at the event or through pre-orders, allowing them to build up a varied personal library over their time at Sacred Heart. 

Autumn Term 2021
This term we introduced Year 7 to our author program by giving them not one but two opportunities to attend events. The first was with Elle McNicoll, author of A Kind of Spark whose new release, Show Us Who You Are, has just been published. Working with the Durham Book Festival, we were able to enjoy this event as part of their virtual festival into schools. Year 7 also took part in a virtual event with the authors of The Very Merry Murder Club – the perfect book to curl up with on a cold winter’s night. 
Here are just some of the authors we have welcomed to our school in the past: 


  • Katherine Woodfine 

  • Angie Thomas 

  • Holly Jackson 

  • Lucy Powrie 

  • Emma Carroll 

  • Cathy Cassidy

  • Sinead O’Hart 

  • Eloise Williams 

  • Catherine Barter 

  • Lauren James 

  • Holly Smale 

  • Siobhan Curham 

  • Bryony Gordon
