Catalyst Review Prize

Caldervale High School has just taken advantage of  S4 pupil, Damon Allan’s Catalyst Longlist Review prize, with an author visit from Dead Boy Talking author, Linda Strachan.  Damon introduced Linda, with a short resume of her life so far, before Linda herself spoke to the group about her Catalyst 2010 winning novel, Spider and her 2011 longlisted Dead Boy Talking.  The book groups were enthralled by her Powerpoint presentation depicting her research with the Fire and Police Services.  Some strong stomachs were needed for a few of the scenarios recounted. Linda took time at the end of her talk to answer questions and sign copies of both of her books.  All of the pupils thoroughly enjoyed sharing Damon’s prize.

    Why are the creepy, gory talks always the best ones?
