The wonderfully named Teri Terry came in to speak to Year 9 on Thursday 2 November. A prolific author of some six novels, ranging from dystopian to contemporary thrillers, Teri’s talk encompassed an array of topics. These ranged from her own literary inspirations and favourites, the science-based and real-life events that informed her books, and her own fascinating life and background as a prolific scientist in her own right. We also learned just why her name is ‘Teri Terry’!
The girls had many questions for her at the end of her talk, and the amount of books sold and signed was ample proof of how successful this event was. Many thanks to Teri for coming in to deliver an inspiring talk to the girls, and to Pea Green Books for their help in organising it.
