Big Brother is Watching You – Literary Society

 

The academic year has begun with two well-attended Literary Society events.

In September, Louisa Reid gave us a detailed and engaging insight into her exciting novel ‘Black Heart Blue’ as well as the process of writing itself.

More recently, students from Year Nine to the Upper Sixth debated the idea of surveillance in literature with Miss Cullen, examining novels from Orwell’s ‘Nineteen Eighty-Four’ to Heller’s ‘Notes on a Scandal’, as well as discussing celebrity culture, social media, CCTV and the role of language in the 21st century.
