She entered the Telling Tales “My Favourite Story App Contest” where entrants had to snap a picture with their favourite book on our Festival App. Abby is an avid reader, plus an aspiring writer and musician. Now she and her classmates will have a unique opportunity to interact with a very high profile author, listen to her stories and discuss the writing process.
