Celia Rees is an award-winning and bestselling author. She is best known for her historical fiction, most notably the acclaimed Witch Child.
Glass Town Wars is her first book for young adults in five years and draws on the Brontë siblings’ imaginary world they created as children, the Glasstown confederacy. In this wonderful speculative fiction, Rees has created a meta-fictional world that will delight readers. This epic adventure story, with her trademark strong female character and romance at its heart, is a compelling action-driven adventure with delightful twists and turns that thrill and surprise right up to the last page.
Celia has previously worked as an English teacher and has a huge amount of experience in school and library events. Celia’s visit would involve a Powerpoint presentation and a reading from Glass Town Wars and an extended Q&A with pupils who have ideally already read or discussed the title.
