I attended a great event a Waterstones Liverpool last weekend for Soman Chainani and THE SCHOOL FOR GOOD AND EVIL trilogy. Jon Mayhew chaired the event, asking the author about the upcoming movie (hopefully scheduled for Christmas 2017 release), the school for Good and the school for Evil and how that idea was shaped, and what kind of things inspired the books in the beginning (eg. fairy tales, books, movies, Disney).
THE SCHOOL FOR GOOD AND EVIL is an enchanting MG adventure in a fairy tale setting. Students train to become either a prince or princess in the school for good, and the villains of the story train in the school for evil. It’s a lot of fun and the imagination goes above and beyond. The illustrations are gorgeous, too.
It was such a great event and I loved listening to how the author writes and the different angles of looking at parts of a story. It was all really inspiring to hear. And I loved meeting the author after the talk and having my books signed. He’s so lovely! Thanks to Jon Mayhew, Soman Chainani, and Waterstones Liverpool for creating such a fun event!
