On Thursday the 10th of April a group of Wellington College pupils attended the finale of the Northern Ireland Book Awards at the Lyric Theatre. It was an entertaining morning featuring a book quiz and a lively talk on how to create fictional characters by Christopher William Hill, the author of ‘Osbert the Avenger’. The students had the opportunity to pick up a signed copy of his latest book in The Schwartzgarten series. Anthony Horowitz’s ‘Russian Roulette’ was declared the winner with Hill’s ‘Osbert’ as runner up from a shortlist of eight.
