Year 8 Author Visit – Matt Dickinson

On Tuesday, 29th November 2016 we welcome Matt Dickinson to Thornden when he will talk to the whole of Year 8 in Thornden Hall.


Matt is a writer and film maker who has worked extensively for National Geographic Television, the Discovery Channel and the BBC, and has filmed on the summit of Mount Everest. His books include ‘The Death Zone’, an account of the ascent of Everest’s North Face as well as ‘The Everest Files’ and ‘Mortal Chaos’ series for teenagers.


There will be an opportunity to buy a copy of one of Matt’s books and get it signed, so pupils will need to bring money with them on the day.
