Children's Laureate to be quizzed by students at Kirkbie Kendal School
9:20am Sunday 27th October 2013 in News
CHILDREN’S Laureate Malorie Blackman will be quizzed by students at Kirkbie Kendal School when she visits next month.
It is her only school visit in the North West and forms part of the school’s work promoting a love of reading to pupils.
The author will be interviewed by Head Boy Louis Musetti and Head Girl Heather Ramsay on stage in front of Year Eight and Year Nine pupils.
Students have put questions forward for Malorie to answer, covering such topics as how she became a writer, what her school was like and where ideas for the stories come from.
Malorie has written over 50 books for children including Pig Heart Boy which took on issues around using animals for human transplants, Noughts and Crosses which explores racism and her new novel, Noble Conflict, which gets the reader to question the nature of truth.
She visits the school on November 13.
