I’d thought I was all finished with school events for 2009 but today I got to do a bonus one, having been invited at shortish notice [via TBM] to talk to Year 8 students at Oxted School, Surrey.

The group were a little quieter than I’ve been used to lately. In fact during my readings from Black Tat, then Tim, and then (on its first school appearance looking like a proper book-!) Crawlers, the students were utterly pin-drop silent. Accustomed to having to work hard to get the attention of more boisterous groups, I was a bit disconcerted at first! But as the session went on hands started to go up and I was asked some fantastic questions. My thanks to everyone there for listening to me so carefully.
