Visit from Author Alex Marchant
Students form Grange Technology College listened to and met the historical novelist Alex Marchant this week.
Students from our school book club are currently reading one of Alex';s novels, plus other students who are keen readers or interested in historical fiction, were invited to a meet and discussion with the author herself.
We discussed the book in depth, along with the historical fact and fiction surrounding Richard 3rd including Shakespeare's portrayal of him.
Alex Marchant is initially from an archaeological background, and has been interested in Richard III since her youth, and worked across the country in archaeology, before publishing and writing. Born in Surrey she now calls Yorkshire her home.
The students spoke with great insight and knowledge, and had a great time meeting the author of a book they were actually engaging with!
Thank you Alex for visiting us.
