The "Portable Magic" Book Festival begins!

11 March 2014

Secondary school students were engaged in an interesting presentation from visiting author Paul Ham on Monday 10th March, the first of many events in 'Portable Magic: BSB's Festival of Books and Big Ideas".

Mr Ham is an author, historian, journalist and publisher. He is a former Sunday Times correspondent and has now written a range of books on historical topics such as The First World War, Hiroshima and The Vietnam War. 

Mr Ham gave a very cross-curricular presentation to students, touching on history, literature and the writing process.

He is the first of three visiting authors coming to The British School of Beijing, Shunyi for the Festival.

Next week Scottish poet Liz Lochhead and author/illustrator Gabrielle Wang will visit and hold workshops with students.

As something a bit different this year, Key Stage Three students (Years 7,8 and 9) will participate in "Drop Everything and Read". At two different times this week, the school bell will ring during lessons, signalling the start of 10 minutes of silent reading. At this time, students and teachers can take time to enjoy a quiet, relaxing and enjoyable moment of reading.
