Carnegie winning author wows the Upper 4

Posted on July 12, 2017


The Upper 4 year group thoroughly enjoyed a very enlightening visit from Tim Bowler, author of over 20 books for teenagers and multiple award winner, including the prestigious Carnegie medal for River Boy. The visit was arranged for us and funded by the Budleigh Salterton Literary Festival which is sponsored by The Maynard.

Described by the Sunday Telegraph as ‘the master of the psychological thriller’ and by the Independent as ‘one of the truly individual voices in British teenage fiction’ this was a stellar talk about how he uses every day life to twist into a gripping story line.

The feedback from this very personal session with plenty of opportunity for questions has been quite immense with many questioning how such a kind, personable and funny man could possibly be the author of such creepy thrillers!
