English teacher, Mrs Janet Hope, said: “We are absolutely delighted that Geraldine McCaughrean has come to Christ College to speak with our Year 7 and 8 pupils who are studying her novel ‘The Kite Rider’ this term. She is a highly engaging writer who has written for all age groups.”
On Friday 22nd November, Christ College will be welcoming pupils from local primary schools from in and around Brecon to hear her talk and to ask her questions about her books and writing. This event will take place in the school’s new Centre for the Creative Arts, Y Neuadd Goffa: The Memorial Hall.
Geraldine was nominated as a Fellow of the English Association and Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature in 2010 and is the only author to have won the Whitbread Children’s Award three times. She has also written the official sequel to J M Barrie’s Peter Pan, Peter Pan in Scarlet.
