TWO authors spoke to pupils during a visit to Chester school which coincided with World Book Day.
American children’s novelist C. J. Daugherty and professional travel photographer Sue Flood visited the Queen’s School.
C.J. spoke to pupils about her career which included writing novels, crime reporting, political commentating, investigative journalism and travel writing.
Sue, a former pupil at the school who lives in Rossett, talked about her adventures in the Arctic and Antarctic. Budding photographers heard how to capture the best wildlife shots and she also stayed behind in the evening to talk to parents and take part in a question and answer session.
Head librarian Gilly Mayes said: “Hearing from women who have worked in the creative industries and made a success of their life is hugely inspirational for our girls.
“Having someone to inspire you is important and often in the media the choices for girls are limited.
“We hope that by meeting inspirational women – and in this case even a former pupil – the girls will have a clearer idea of the choices open to them.”
