Local Author Visit

13th October 2023
On Friday 13th October, St Augustine’s welcomed local author, Liam R. Findlay, into three classes to discuss his new book and the process that he had to go through when producing it. He worked in Years 4, 5 and 6, focussing on the importance of description when writing. Liam said, ‘It was a pleasure meeting St Augustine's many bright and well-read students. I enjoyed speaking to them about creative writing, following the publication of my spooky middle-grade novel The Doom Town Dummies! I spoke to classes about the process behind putting a book together, and the students were full of curiosity, imagination and questions. It was also a delight signing some copies in the library after school. I am sure St Augustine's is full of many future authors and noteworthy creatives.’
 
The children thoroughly enjoyed the experience and learnt a lot about what it takes to become an author
