Alan Gibbons, award winning children’s author, will be visiting Bootham School on Monday 30 April, to meet students in Years 7, 8 and 9. Winner of the Blue Peter Book Award and shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal, he has been described as a rising star in children’s fiction. His works include Shadow of the Minotaur and The Dying Photo.
Susanne Gair, English teacher at Bootham, said, “We are looking forward to welcoming him to Bootham and I know the students will enjoy hearing Alan Gibbons reading from his work and telling us more about how to become a writer. He is a very entertaining speaker and I am sure his workshop will produce some super stories from our budding writers.”
