Award Winning Author Ruth Eastham visits President Kennedy School

Students from Year 7 and 8 were lucky enough to meet author Ruth Eastham, to hear her talk about her new book “The Jaguar Trials”.  Her debut novel, “The Memory Cage”, was nominated for the prestigious Carnegie Medal.  It won three awards and was shortlisted for 8 others. Many of the students that attended had studied The Memory Cage and were looking forward to meeting her and hearing her talk about writing.

During the visit, Ruth talked about her life and how she was able to write her new book – which is set in South America, without actually going there.  She explained how she researched the area by reading the diaries of famous explorers.

At the end of the visit the students were able to meet Ruth personally and have their books signed by her.  Copies of her new book “The Jaguar Trials” are available to borrow from the School Library and will also be on sale at the Book Fair from Monday 6th July to Thursday 9th July - all the books will be half price!
