On Wednesday 13 February, we welcomed Tracey Mathias who is the author of a Young Adult novel Night of the Party and a Year 13 parent. Tracey gave Y10 a very interesting insight into how she became a writer and the challenges she has faced in her writing career.
The Night of the Party is a love story but also a political thriller, set in a near future England dominated by a hard right, nationalist party. Tracey explained that although her novel the Night of the Party has been described as a “post- Brexit” thriller she actually wrote the book before the referendum and before the word Brexit was being used.
We look forward to hearing about Tracey’s future projects!
