Press coverage of the Book Festival 2012
The Kilburn Times gave us two great write-ups – one on each side of the weekend.
Before the Festival senior reporter Tara Brady reported QPCS pupil Cassandra Neves, 16, saying: “I feel like the school has become a real part of the event and it makes me really proud to be given responsibilities – interviewing Che Golden and Lil Chase will be a brilliant experience.”
Shehnaz O’Mallie, teacher, said: “It’s been great seeing the kids so enthused about celebrating literature. It’s going to be such a fun day.”
Andre, a trainee journalist from the Kilburn Times attended the whole event and wrote a great article the following week.
Poet and Wembley resident Dean Atta, who also works with Queen’s Park Community School, delivered a storming stream of spoken word and appreciated the importance placed on a young audience.
He said: “The organizers have given away tickets to young people in the area so that they can get exposure to poetry and writing.
