"Fall into Books" Book Festival a huge hit
19 October 2018
Author Dan Smith visited Norham for the second time in the past three years and yet again entertained the whole of Years 7 and 8. Dan was such a massive inspiration to pupils last time we thought we must have him back as part of the "Fall into Books" Book Festival in association with North Tyneside Libraries.
Dan is famous for his adventure and survival stories for younger readers including My Brother's Secret, My Friend the Enemy, Big Game and Boy X. This time he had his new book "Below Zero" on display for pupils to buy and get signed and he also touched on his latest book "SHEWOLF" which is due to be released in March 2019.
Again Dan told of his early life living in far away places, growing up and finding adventure in the padi-fields of South East Asia and the jungles of Brazil as well as the humdrum life of boarding school. He told many stories about his adventures and how these had transformed into books.
Thanks yet again to North Tyneside Library Service for supporting us in securing another author to promote literacy within our school.
