Did you catch the news this week? You may have seen essay-writing competition winners from an Islington school visit Michelle Obama at the White House. As part of their trip, Tamarind gave them 15 copies of Michelle Obama: The Making of a First Lady, and copies for Mr and Mrs Obama of their biographies. US-based author Dawne Allette also met the winners for cookies and milk, and signed their keepsake books.
