St Ives children's author takes new book to Truro High School
Award-winning St Ives author Ann Kelley visited a Cornwall school to talk about her new novel Runners.
Ann, who won the 2007 Costa Children’s Book of The Year award for The Bower Bird, read extracts from Runners and answered questions from Year 10 and 11 pupils at Truro High School.
Set in Cornwall, Runners tells the story of two children treated as outlaws by a futuristic society fighting to counter the effects of climate change, over-population and global food shortages.
Truro High School English teacher Juliet Trewellard said: “Ann is an excellent writer and the girls were really pleased to have the opportunity of meeting her and hearing what she had to say.
