Last term Year 7 students were invited to Barry library to meet authors Michelle Briscombe and Cathy Farr. Each form class travelled down to the library where they met the author and were treated to a reading from their novel. Students were given the chance to ask questions and find out what inspired both authors to write their novels. They also had the opportunity to purchase a novel and have it signed by the author.
Cathy Farr, author of fantasy adventures Moon Chase and Moon Crossing, spoke to the pupils about her books and about how she became a writer. Some students were lucky enough to meet the inspiration behind her books – her Irish Wolfhound, Mojo!
Barry Library also promoted some of the great facilities they have for young people and encouraged pupils to join the library if they hadn’t already. The students thoroughly enjoyed the trip and we look forward to visiting the library again in the future.
7ANB had missed out on seeing Cathy and Mojo at Barry Library so they kindly made a special visit to the school, much to the delight of students and staff.
