World Book Day 2018 takes place on Thursday 1st March and we have a very special treat in store for our pupils: award-winning children’s author, Katherine Rundell, will be visiting us to talk to Years 5, 6 and 7 about her books and the inspiration behind them, as well as giving our pupils valuable insight into what life as an author is like. In January this year, Katherine was awarded the Costa Children’s Book Prize for her most recent novel, The Explorer. In addition to her work as a novelist, Katherine is also a fellow of All Souls College, Oxford. She is sure to inspire our budding writers here at King’s Hall!

Katherine will be available to sign pupils’ books on the day and there will, as usual, be a book stall for those pupils to might wish to buy one and have it signed.

We can’t wait to meet her!
