Students in Years 6-8 listened, enthralled, as visiting author, Christopher Edge, talked to them about his most recent novel, ‘The Many Worlds of Albie Bright’. He described how the main character, Albie, uses quantum physics to travel to parallel universes in search of his recently deceased mother. Christopher also talked a little about his other books, and about the writer’s craft.

It was fascinating to hear that he writes all his novels by hand first and then transfers them to the computer; he even showed us the notebooks containing his current book! Many students asked questions and bought copies of the book, which Christopher signed.

The visit, which was part of the Appledore Book Festival schools’ event, was enjoyed by all.
