Meeting Author Vashti Hardy

17th January 2019
Our older children met Vashti Hardy, author of Brightstorm, in an interactive Q&A session at The Weald. She discussed the inspiration for her novel and the children were pleased to hear that two of the famous explorers they had been learning about had inspired her characters; Ernest Shackleton and Amelia Earhart. The children were encouraged to try on outfits and explore maps created by the author.
