Celebrate World Book Day with Oldham Libraries and Cathy Cassidy!

Don’t miss the opportunity to meet Cathy Cassidy, bestselling author of the Chocolate Box Girls series and many other books for older children and young teens. Sami's Silver Lining, her latest novel, explores the life of teen refugee Sami as he settles into life in the UK and learns to trust again - an eye-opening, moving book with an unexpectedly hopeful ending. Cathy is a supporter of CRIBS International, a charity that provides homes for refugees who are pregnant or have a new baby. Since starting up in 2016, they have provided help and homes for over twenty five families, including two set of twins and a baby born weighing only one kilo.

Listen to Cathy's tips on writing, dreaming and stepping into the shoes of others - thought-provoking, fun and inspirational. Cathy will be signing and selling copies of Sami’s Silver Lining at this World Book Day event.
