students at Hipperholme and Lightcliffe High School meet Charlie Higson.

Budding young authors at Hipperholme and Lightcliffe High School were given an inspiring insight into the career of best selling author Charlie Higson.

The writer and comedian visited the school to promote his new book The Fallen and appeared before an invited audience of 300 young people where he spoke about his career as a children’s writer which began with the Young Bond series.

Calderdale Council’s Cabinet Member for Children and Young People’s Services, Coun Megan Swift, said: “I’m delighted that the children at Hipperholme and Lightcliffe, along with those from Brighouse High, Brooksbank and North Halifax Grammar, found the visit so entertaining.

“I hope his visit will encourage others to follow in his literary footsteps.”
