Frances Hardinge Visits Broadford!

On Tuesday, winner of the Costa Book Award, Frances Hardinge, visited Broadford! Our year 6 Spinebreakers were ready and waiting to ask her questions about her work as an author, where she gets her inspiration for writing stories from and how she felt about being the first children's author to win Costa's Book of the Year 2015 award since Philip Pullman in 2001!

Watch the Spinebreakers interview Frances...

Following her interview, Frances spoke to our Year 6 pupils. She promoted the books she has had published to date and read a section from her story, The Lie Tree. A group of our year 5 and 6 pupils were given the opportunity to work with Frances in the afternoon, creating their own 2 sentence scary stories.

We have several books by Frances, including The Lie Tree. Visit the library to borrow or reserve your copy today!
