Author Visit

Year 4, 5 and 6 went to North Shields Library to meet the children’s author Adam Baron.


Adam Baron is the author of five successful novels and has, in his time, been an actor, comedian, journalist and press officer at Channel 4 television (as well as things he's too embarrassed to mention). He now runs the widely respected MA in Creative Writing at Kingston University London. The children were introduced to two of Adam’s books that they were able to buy on the day. ‘The Boy Under Water’ and ‘You Won’t Believe This. Both books feature the main character Cymbeline Igloo. 


With the children’s help Adam we created a story based on the fairytale ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’. The children were asked to make choices through the story to make a brand new story. Adam then read an extract from his first novel ‘Boy Under Water’. The children then asked Adam questions about being an author. 

Those of us who were lucky enough to buy one of Adam’s books had it personally signed.
