Boston Book Festival Trip

A group of children in Years 6, 7 and 8 travelled to Blackfriars Arts Centre on Sunday for the first Boston Book Festival to hear a talk with famous children's author Michael Morpurgo. Michael really engaged the children as he spoke about his life and the unique things he has experienced that have inspired his books. He had lots of funny stories to tell and answered a lot of questions from the audience about how he writes his books, even giving the children in the audience some tips on how to write stories themselves! We were also treated to a reading from his latest book out this month: When Fishes Flew. 

The highlight though was Michael actually passing us on his way into the theatre! "Are you coming to see this?" he asked the children. "Yes!" we replied. "I wouldn't." he said. "I've heard it will be rubbish!" Thankfully, he was wrong!
