Author pays school visit to motivate pupils
AUTHOR Katy Moran's visits were the best possible start to the fresh academic year at Archway Comprehensive in Stroud.
School librarian Alice Day, who won Ms Moran's visits for the pupils, said: "It was my dream way to start the new school term. I was delighted. It has been so inspirational."
Writer Ms Moran told her stories very much from young adults' perspective, said Ms Day, who won the three sessions that were held on Friday and yesterday, with another planned for this Friday, through Walker books.
Mr Moran's first three tales, based in the Dark Ages, all have strong women characters and are surreal and magical adventures.
