Author, Christopher, recently came into School to talk to pupils in Years 7-9. Edge has written a variety of books in the past six years, including zombie thrillers, Victorian Gothic mysteries and helpful ‘how to’ manuals, and pupils were excited to hear more about his work. Edge’s most recent book, ‘The Jamie Drake Equation’, was published just the day before he visited.
The talk began with a humorous science test, with discussion of science topics such as quantum physics and Schrodinger’s Cat experiment which feature in Edge’s latest books. He also read an extract from ‘The Many Worlds of Albie Bright’, which addressed bereavement and parallel universes with a degree of humour. Following the talk, pupils were eager to purchase signed copies of his books, some of the most popular being ‘How to be a Young Writer’ and ‘How to Write Your Best Story Ever’. The author may be facing some competition from our budding authors in the future!
