City Academy Students were invited by the Millennium Library in Norwich to meet upcoming teen author Alexia Casale. Alexia is an author, writing consultant and editor. She also teaches English Literature and Writing.
She is the author of The Bone Dragon which explores the fragile boundaries between real life and fantasy. It is a riveting blend of psychological thriller and fairy-tale,
Her latest book The House of Windows is about a young boy Nick who is a child genius and his experiences when he gets to Cambridge University and the difficulties he has fitting in there.
Alexia gave a really interesting talk about her books, the creative writing process and her struggles with dyslexia. She is a supporter of teenage mental health charities and cares passionately about this issue.
Students were able to meet Alexia at the event and have their books signed.
