"Lisa Thompson is a marvel. Her visit to Springwood Heath was filled with as much magic and mystery as her books are! An engaging assembly, super writing workshops, a CRASH (Cool Readers At Springwood Heath) Q & A session and a book signing! It was non-stop and the children and adults LOVED it! Lisa was funny, down to earth and inspiring. Book her!"
Mr. Ian Hunt, Headteacher Springwood Heath Primary School
"It was a joy to have Lisa Thompson as the star guest at our Family Book Club. Over 80 students and assorted family members had read her latest book, The Day I Was Erased and came together to discuss it with the author. Lisa was charming, professional, and totally unfazed by the many, occasionally off-the-wall, questions from the younger members of the audience! We will definitely be inviting her back!”
Katy Fletcher, Librarian, Dulwich Prep School
"We’ve worked with Lisa a number of times now and each time we’ve been wholly impressed with her knowledge, enthusiasm and professionalism. Lisa is a natural when it comes to connecting with her audience, especially children and young people, and she is a delight to watch and listen to. Suffolk Libraries is very happy to recommend Lisa to any school!"
Krystal Vittles, Head of Service Delivery
