On Wednesday 11th of October, our Year 9 students enjoyed a visit from published author, Jennifer Lane.
Her latest novel, The Black Air, is set in Lancashire and was inspired by the tales of the Pendle witches. The novel explores dark mysteries, supernatural forces and the power of female friendship.
A panel of three Year 9 students interviewed Jennifer Lane in the hall as part of the visit. Jemima A, Pixie H and Erin G did an absolutely fantastic job of posing the question to the author.
The whole year group engaged brilliantly in the talk, which culminated in a question and answer session. The English department was so impressed by the quality of the thoughtful questions that were posed to the author.
This mysterious and spellbinding novel sounds like the perfect read for those looking for a spooky autumnal novel
Thank you to Jennifer Lane and the team at UCLAN publishing for coming to speak to our students.
