Middlewich High School enjoyed an inspiring and entertaining ‘virtual’ visit from award-winning author Stewart Foster this afternoon.

Middlewich High School enjoyed an inspiring and entertaining ‘virtual’ visit from award-winning author Stewart Foster this afternoon.

 

Students have been reading Check Mates and asked lots of questions, ranging from how Stewart overcomes writer’s block to how much money he actually earns from each book sold (not “millions”, much to the students’ surprise!). Several students have commented that they enjoy Check Mates because the characters and situations are so relatable.

Before the Skype session with Stewart, one student commented, “Imagine getting that bored that you write a book.” Afterwards, he wanted to write down the names of Stewart’s other books so that he can read them, and is begging us to have an actual visit from Stewart in the future.

Keep an eye on the school website for more about Stewart’s visit next week and in the meantime, check out his other books, including Bubble Boy and All the Things that Could Go Wrong.
