QES was thrilled to welcome author of ‘The Sinclair’s Mysteries’ Katherine Woodfine on Thursday 30th November. Year 7 QES students and Year 5 students from St Mary’s Primary School, were excited to listen to her talk about her books and the Edwardian era in which they are set. We then had the opportunity to ask questions and buy signed copies of her books. Katherine was impressed with posters designed by Year 7 students to advertise the opening of the legendary Sinclair’s Department Store, the setting for her mystery series, based on the real life Selfridges & Co which opened in London in 1908. Katherine was also proud to tell students that one of her earliest writing inspirations was her favourite English teacher, now Head of School Miss O’Neil! A happy coincidence!
