Interview with an Author: John Boyne

The students in Rooms 4, 14 and 17 were incredibly lucky to be given the opportunity to meet and greet John Boyne; author of “The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas”. We had just finished a unit of study on the novel and were very excited to ask him questions about the book, the Writing Process and the adaptation of the book to the film.

It was very inspiring to hear him talk about following his dreams and becoming such a successful author. He also gave us some fascinating insights into the creation of his characters in the novel and even revealed his favourite part of the book itself.
