Claire Keegan Visit

Claire Keegan Visit

This morning, 5th Years thoroughly enjoyed a special audience with the highly acclaimed award-winning author Claire Keegan.

All 5th Years, who are studying the powerful novel 'Foster', were invited to a 'talk' and 'question and answer session' in the company of Claire.  The fascinating novel, which leaves many 'unanswered' questions,  was discussed at length and all possible manner of alternative 'what happened next?' scenarios were suggested.  Claire was hugely interested to hear the various opinions and suggestions, and reminded the girls that any one of those suggestions could in fact be the continuation of the story, enigmatically asking 'who knows?'.

A big thank you to Claire Keegan for the visit, and for her insights into characters, setting and story-telling.
