A special presentation is being held at Sudbury Library to announce the winners of a children’s writing competition and to launch a book celebrating the entries.
Publishers Lavenham Press sponsored the competition by offering to publish the entries in a book, which features a foreword by best-selling author Anthony Horowitz.
Mr Horowitz, who penned the teen spy Alex Rider series, has also signed two copies, which will be given to the winners of each age category.
The competition was organised by staff at Sudbury Library and the Friends of Sudbury Library, which challenged children to write a short story of up to 500 words.
The event will take place at 3pm on November 4, and the book will then be available to buy for £5 and all money raised will help to support Suffolk Libraries and the Friends of Sudbury Library.
