Author Penny Joelson talks to Year 7 Assembly!

We were delighted that the author Penny Joelson returned to the school before half term to talk to Year 7 in their assembly. Penny told students about the books that inspired her as a child, her journey to being an author and how a book gets to be published.  Many students were surprised to learn how little an author makes from each book that is sold.  Penny explained about the inspiration behind her books I have No Secrets and Girl In The Window; and had the audience enthralled as she read the gripping opening of Girl in the Window.

All students in Years 7 and 8 have recently had the opportunity to hear Penny talk about her exciting thrillers, and to be inspired by her work.  Natalie in Year 7 sent this review of the visit:

‘On Wednesday the 1st of May, newly published author and old Owenian Emma Everitt-Story spoke to the current Year 7 students about her first published book, Samantha Drury’s Secret Diary, out of the worm hole into the snake pit. She also spoke about her school time at Owens and the process of writing a book. I found her talk very inspirational and she had some helpful tips for writing a story. Having read the story, there are a lot of references to Owen’s that you may notice if you read it. I got straight into Samantha’s world and her story, it is relatable and is sentimental at times as well as a good laugh. This is a good book for all ages and I highly recommend it.’
