Simon James Green visits the Learning Lounge

On Tuesday the 4th of February, Toot Hill's Learning Lounge were lucky enough to welcome Simon James Green through their doors. Simon James Green is the author of 'Noah can't even' and 'Alex in Wonderland'. Both books are comedies involving LGBTQ+ teens.

Simon ran a creating a character workshop where students had to build their character through acting. They had to ask themselves questions like; how would my character act if they were stood at a bus stop? Through these exercises students became their characters and wrote the beginnings of a story. Simon then signed books and did an interview for Toot Hill's News Team.

If you missed Simon's visit you can borrow his books from the Learning Lounge or listen to the podcast Lounging With Books where he was interviewed by our students ->
