Book Club Author Visit

Today, Year 6 book club were lucky enough to have a visit from the author of 'City of Light', Steve Griffin.

Steve read us an extract from his book and spoke about the experiences of his own life which inspired the writing of the series of books.
Children from year 6 asked many questions ranging from 'How do you start planning such a long story?' 'What inspired you to become a writer?' 'Was the main character based on someone you know?' 'Do you have to edit your stories?'
It was fascinating to hear all his answers and how his process of writing mirrored how we write at school. We plan, we write and we edit (by ourselves and with our peers), just like he does.
Thank you so much Steve for coming to see us!
