Visit of local author and Upton Old Girl, Berlie Doherty to the Library

On Friday 7July 2017 local author and Upton Old Girl Berlie Doherty visited the Library for workshops with some of Years 7 and 8. She read from her first published book “How Green You Are” which tells of her time in Upton and gave insights into her writing process. There was a Q & A session at the end and then she signed books. It was a thoroughly enjoyable visit.

Before she left she asked for a quick tour of her old school and later in an email said.......

I had a lovely time with you all, and particularly enjoyed talking to the girls who shared our buffet, how wonderful it was to hear them talking about books with such enthusiasm and perception. They must be a joy to any librarian, English teacher and author!”
