Author Vashti Hardy visits Northfield School

Best-selling children’s author and bookshop favourite, Vashti Hardy, visited Northfield School on Wednesday 22 May and invited Y5 & Y6 students from Norton, Oakdene and Roseberry primary schools to join our Year 7 students to talk about her time as a teacher and where she gets her ideas from.

Vashti’s latest book ‘Wildspark’ follows the adventures of a sister and brother who are on a mission to get the ghost machines of Medlock to remember the people they used to be.

Vashti also talked about her adventure and mystery book ‘Brightstorm’, before taking a question & answer session followed by book signing and photographs.

Students had an inspiring morning and queued eagerly to chat to Vashti and take home a signed copy of her book.
