A number of Year 7 Cowley students have been taking part in the National Teen Book Club, which is run by Speakers for Schools.
National Teen Book Club brings together 11-19 year olds from state schools and colleges across the UK, to a shared virtual Book Club to share reading a book and hear from speakers connected with careers in writing, publishing or the themes of the book – including an opportunity to pose questions to the author themselves!
The sessions are taking place after school on Wednesdays for four weeks, having started last week.
During the first session, pupils were able to interview Abioola Bello, who is the author of the Emily Knight series.
They listened to Abioola explain how she became a published author, as well as what inspires her writing and a bit about the process of actually bringing a book to the shelves.
Cowley students asked some fantastic questions and appreciated such detailed responses from her. Well done to our students who are participating.
