Author Will Hill Visits Stamford School

 Author Will Hill with the Stamford School Junior Book ClubMembers of the Junior Book Club at Stamford School were privileged to meet one of their favourite authors, Will Hill, at the end of last term.

Following a talk to the Y7 boys Will, author of successful young adult horror novel ‘Department 19,’ signed copies of his book and visited the Stamford School library to talk to 21 members of the Junior Book Club  (from Years 7 – 9), who were all avid fans.

While the group tucked into the array of delicious cakes on offer, Will answered the many questions posed by his eager audience. Will entertained with a discussion on his inspiration for writing, his aspirations for the future and insights into his novel and its characters.

The enthralled group also heard an exclusive reading of a couple of pages from the sequel to his first novel, ‘Department 19: The Rising.’

Many thanks to Lorna Blissett for organising the visit, Will for coming along to talk to the students and the members of the book club for their insightful questions.
