World Book DayAuthor “Speed Dating” at Bangor Academy helps readers renew their reading vows on World Book Day.

Bangor Academy’s English students played The World Book Day “Speed Dating” game to introduce them to authors with whom they’ve yet to fall in love. Students read the opening of an unfamiliar novel and then either recommended or warned against making a “date” with the new book.

Hopefully everyone found a new author to help them reignite their romance with reading!
