Anthony Horowitz questions/live chat

Watch our live stream where the man behind the Alex Rider books and Power of Five series answers questions and reads from his new novel RUSSIAN ROULETTE

Show date: 16th June

Show time: 2pm

Who: Anthony Horowitz and Barney Harwood

The 2014 New Year Honours, Anthony Horowitz received an OBE for services to literature. Anthony is one of the most popular, influential, inspiring and (occasionally) provocative writers for young people in the UK. He’s best known as the author of the number one bestselling ALEX RIDER books (28 languages, 16 million English language sales).

Anthony has been widely acclaimed for inspiring a generation of teen and pre-teen boys to read – though his work also has a huge female readership. He’s fiercely championed the work of teachers and school librarians. He’s conducted writing workshops with youth offenders. He’s been called in by government administrations – Labour and Conservative/Liberal – to discuss the secret to getting and keeping kids reading. Earlier this year, he even interviewed Michael Gove (for The Spectator).

Now, on June 16th, Anthony is plotting a playful takeover of school English lessons by broadcasting live to schools across the UK and Ireland with a one-hour digital event, hosted by TV presenter Barney Harwood. Rest assured, this will make for an English lesson like no other!
