As a reward for hard work in English, Year 7 students were able to meet children’s author Lauren St John in the school library today. Lauren has written several books including;
The One Dollar Horse, The White Giraffe and Dead Man’s Cove which won her a Blue Peter Book Award in 2011.
Zimbabwe born Lauren told tales of her childhood living on a farm and how the animals that she helped look after have inspired the storylines and characters in her books.
Lauren also held a question and answer session after the talk, and signed copies of her books which were on sale.
This workshop was generously organised for St Peter’s through the Budleigh Salterton Literary Festival (BSLF) free of charge.
