Ten of the deepest thinkers and hardest readers from Year 12, travelled to London at the start of the February Half Term with just one mission in mind: to deliver an eight minute talk to the group about a book of their choosing. The range was impressively wide from weird medicinal research to any imaginative literature you care to name – provided it was located in a country called Dystopia. Talks happened indoors and outdoors including the British Library and London College of Art. Trains were caught, pizza was eaten and a cinema was visited. London was walked. Mr McCabe and Dr Walker nodded sagely at the end of a long day and agreed that this had been one of the best reading days of modern times. Well done to all.
