Author Visit with Tom Palmer

St George's was delighted to welcome the author Tom Palmer to the school recently. Tom spoke to girls in P6 about his latest novel, ‘Armistice Runner’, a thrilling novel which focuses on thirteen year old Lily, a passionate cross country runner.  When Lily discovers her great-great grandfather’s diary, she learns he was also a runner, but a trench runner during the First World War.

Tom spoke to the girls about the research required for the book, the writing process and how the cover of the book was designed.   He also took questions from the girls and at the end of the visit took time to sign copies of his new book for the girls.  If you are interested in finding out more about Tom you can visit
