The Frankfurt Book Fair is coming closer and two Publishing Houses – dtv and cbj – will give us the chance to meet two great authors:
Natalie C. Anderson will meet all S6 classes to talk about her book “City of saints & thieves”. Natalie will travel to Africa, where Tina and her mother fled from Congo years ago as refugees, trading the uncertain danger of their besieged village for a new, safer life in the bustling Kenyan metropolis. The corruption and politics of the Congo, and the gangster world of Sangui City, are behind Tina’s mother’s downfall.
As S6 classes got the topic “Development” in the curriculum, the visit perfectly fits to their needs: Natalie C. Anderson is an American writer and international development professional based in Geneva, Switzerland with her husband and son. You can also sometimes find her in the mountains of North Carolina or Nairobi, Kenya. She spent a decade working with NGOs and the UN on refugee issues around the world, mainly Africa.
Karen McManus will visit S2EN+S3EN classes. Karen M. McManus is the author of the New York Times and international bestselling young adult novels One of Us Is Lying and Two Can Keep a Secret. Her work has been translated into 40 languages worldwide. Karen lives in Massachusetts and holds a master’s degree in Journalism from Northeastern University, which she mostly uses to draft fake news stories for her novels.
The Breakfast Club meets Pretty Little Liars, One of Us Is Lying is the story of what happens when five strangers walk into detention and only four walk out alive. Everyone is a suspect, and everyone has something to hide.
