Author Visit

29th January 2020


We are fortunate to have children’s author Peter J Murray for a return visit to Highfield Middle School on Monday 4th February. Peter kindly re-launched our newly-refurbished library last year and his book-signing was the most popular yet.

Peter writes books for 7 – 13 year olds. He is the author of the popular Mokee Joe series and the chilling Bonebreaker trilogy. His latest novel Poppy Warrior is inspired by the events of World War I and is described as ‘a must read for all schools who cover conflict and remembrance in the curriculum’. Peter is passionate in his quest to promote literacy in schools and to inspire even the least confident children to use their imagination and achieve creative success.

During the visit Peter will be making a presentation to the whole school, followed by a book signing event in the library the following day.

Thank you for supporting the promotion of the love of reading- at Highfield.
