Michael Morpurgo at ReadingZone Live!

Today, Michael Morpurgo is taking part in Reading Zone Live to talk about Private Peaceful and the commemoration of the Battle of the Somme.

The ReadingZone Live programme is a collaboration with London Grid for Learning when authors visit schools and young people have the opportunity to ask them questions via video conference.

For this event, Michael will be talking about the inspiration behind Private Peaceful and the message that the story has for today’s young people.


Don’t worry if you won’t be able to tune in – videos from the event will be uploaded soon!
