Mary Hooper visit to Woodcote Library

Woodcote Library and Langtree were delighted to welcome Mary Hooper this week; Mary is a very popular writer for children and young adults and has written over 70 books. Her historical novels have a huge fan base, as do her contemporary novels for teenagers. At The Sign of the Sugared Plum was selected as part of the 2010 Booked Up scheme and Fallen Grace was nominated for the Carnegie Medal 2011.

Mary gave a fascinating talk to 60 Year 9 students about the process of writing a historical novel – from research to publication. She then met 11 Year 8 students for a small, informal book group.  The Year 8s have spent the past month reading a range of Mary’s books and enjoyed the opportunity to talk to her about their favourite characters, plots and settings.  They were so keen on ‘Eliza Rose’ that Mary might be persuaded to write a sequel!
