Local author David Lawrence Jones visits St Mary's

As part of World Book Day celebrations, pupils at St Mary’s Catholic Primary School, Buckfast invited local author David Lawrence Jones into school.  He led a practical presentation detailing what inspired him to become an author and he also gave an insight into the series of books he has written, based around the character Bradley Baker.  During the afternoon, children were invited to take part in some drama work alongside the author, playing some of the characters from the books.  The highlight of the afternoon was one of David’s props, a bath tub which glowed green and ‘smoked’.

Many of the children bought books in the school library following the event and were thrilled to have their books signed by the author.
