Joanna Williams, former head of history at AGGS, has just sent news that her book ‘Manchester’s Radical Mayor: Abel Heywood, the Man who Built the Town Hall’, will be out on 1 Sept and is already on Amazon to pre-order. A fantastic achievement:
As some of the pupils know, Mrs Clark of the English department has another identity as Anna Mainwaring, a writer of teen fiction. Her new book is called ‘The Lives and Loves of Jesobel Jones‘ and will be launched at a lunchtime event in the school library on March 25th.
Signed books can be purchased at a discounted price of £7 on the day. Alternatively, the paperback will be on sale on the Amazon website for £7.99 whilst the kindle version is a mere £1.99! A recent review described Jesobel as a cross between ‘a teenage Bridget Jones and Louise Rennison’. If that appeals, come to the Library on March 25th!
