Before half term Shrewsbury House welcomed Jonathan Stroud, best -selling author of Lockwood & Co which follows a detective agency that solve cases involving ghosts.
Jonathan gave an informative and engaging talk to Years 6,7,8 and pupils from Hinchley Wood School.
Jonathan talked about his love of writing, ghosts and the fact that, contrary to popular belief, you can tell a book by its cover! He read from the fourth book in his Lockwood & Co series about ghost hunters in modern day London, and explained some of the difficulties in writing ghost stories ‘because it has been done a million times before’.
Jonathan brought along his ghost hunting kit containing essential tools for a modern day ghost hunter and Kit Derrick happily volunteered to model for the audience.
The event ended with a lively Q & A plus book signing.
