There was a huge author presence at this afternoon's heat. In fact three teams of authors competed against the kids. One authors' team managed to score a point more than tonight's winners from Cherwell School. Congratulations to Jack, Joseph, Alfie and Hamish. In second place was Oxford High School and in third place was Abingdon School.
The eleven authors tonight were: Marie-Louise Jensen, MG Harris, Susie Day, Sally Nicholls, Joss Stirling, Rachael Wing, Michelle Harrison, Lucy Coates, Julia Golding, Dennis Hamley and Richard Knight from Barefoot Books. Thanks you all very much for your show of support.
This afternoon's books were sponsored by OUP
SERCO our chief sponsor was present too as well as a large crowd of supporters.
I was very impressed with the rapidity in which the spot questions were answered
Well done all
