Children's author to visit high school
11:00am Monday 21st October 2013 in News
BEST selling children’s author Jonathon Stroud is set to visit Droitwich Spa High School on Thursday.
During the day, the author of The Screaming Staircase and the ‘Bartimaeus’ trilogy, will spend time reading and talking with students from year eight and nine from both Droitwich Spa and six other high schools from across the region.
Droitwich Spa High School’s librarian, Mrs Heather Evans who has organised the event said: “I have read Jonathon’s book called Lockwood and Co, so I am really excited to have him visit us here at school. Lockwood and Co. is a great horror/fantasy story set in London where there are night curfews because of an epidemic of ghosts. It is a well written and fun book that is just the kind of story that gets all young teenagers into the wonderful habit of reading. Having authors visit us in schools is also an essential part of that process.”
Mr Stroud is highly regarded as an author having sold more than six million books in 35 countries. During his visit, books will be available for purchase and signing.
