Author Damien Dibben Visits BBEC


Today Damien Dibben visited the LRC (Library) to promote his new book 'The History Keepers '

Damien  first told us about himself and gave us a basic outline of the story. Next he  read a short extract from the start of the story. We then got the chance to ask  Damien some questions about his life.

One pupil asked 'Where did you write your book?'  Damien replied 'I work in an office in London and each morning & evening when I go to and from the office I walk my dog along the River Thames'.  

The Year 7 pupils who attended this event, thoroughly enjoyed the visit and many left looking forward to reading their signed copy of the History Keepers.  

Watch out for the film of the book!
