Secondary Schools Outreach

In June 2018, after the success of our Festival Schools Day working with local Greenwich primary schools, we extended our educational programme to include a Secondary Schools Outreach Programme. The inaugural events, which ran at Thomas Tallis School and The John Roan School, included an author talk and Q&A session with rising YA star Muhammad Khan, the winner of a John C Lawrence award for his book ‘I am Thunder’ (Macmillan Children’s Books).

This year, we are pleased to be taking our Greenwich Book Festival Outreach Programme to another two local secondary schools. Carnegie Medal nominated author Catherine Johnson will be running creative writing and author talks based on her recent novels ‘Freedom’ (Scholastic) and Race To The Frozen North (Barrington Stoke).
