Bell Baxter Meets Darren Shan!
Thirty-six pupils headed off to Carnegie Hall, Dunfermline on Thursday morning to attend an author event with Darren Shan as part of the Edinburgh International Book Festival’s outreach programme. The event was hosted by Fife Cultural Trust’s Museums and Libraries team.
A prolific writer of teenage horror, Darren had the audience enthralled with his book readings; made all the more captivating as his South London accent made his voice sound very sinister.
Our pupils were eager to ask Darren questions and they enjoyed talking to him when they were getting their books signed.
Darren Shan may have found some new fans!! You can follow Darren Shan on Twitter @darrenshan.
