Book Club visit North Cornwall Book Festival

Truro School Book Club attended the annual North Cornwall Book Festival last Friday, for its seventh year.

They got to meet Irish author John Boyne, best known for his Young Adult novel ‘The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas’. He gave a fascinating talk about his new novel, ‘My Brother’s Name is Jessica’, as well as top writing tips.

Matt Windle, know as the ‘Poet with Punch’ delivered a fascinating spoken-word workshop, encouraging students to use poetry as a means of expression.

Finally, Kernow Youth Book Award winner, Liz Kessler, gave a brilliant workshop on creative writing, against the stunning backdrop of St Endellion Church.

The pupils had a fantastic day, receiving professional, real life writing skills for a variety of styles.
