Tom Rogers Author VisitPosted on: 29/03/2022
As part of Hatch End High School’s commitment to promoting reading for pleasure, Year 7 have been introduced to Reading Book Wheels. Eleven, by Tom Rogers, was the focus book of Book Wheel Number 2, and all students have been given their own copy to keep.
On Tuesday 29th March, Year 7 had the pleasure of participating in a Zoom meeting with Tom, who spoke to the students about his inspiration for the novel, as well as his love for writing.
Students also got the opportunity to ask him questions, such as ‘Why the title Eleven?’ and ‘When did you know you wanted to be an author?’
It was an inspiring event, with Tom’s key message being, ‘If you like writing, just write!’
