Page Turners – St John’s Sixth Formers’ Event at LitFest 2015

Monday, September 28th, 2015

We are very pleased to announce Page Turners – an event organised by students at St John’s Marlborough which will take place in St Mary’s Church Hall at 1.30pm on Saturday 3rd October. Tickets are free to this event.

The students will be showing a 20-minute film they made about books and reading.

The 20 minute film – edited down from an original 45 minutes – will be screened to a LitFest audience and then a discussion will take place between the student panel, chaired by Richard Lamb, a St John’s English teacher. See the Marlborough News Online report on the event.

The Page Turners initiative is a follow up to some digital book vlogs created by St John’s students from Years 8, 9 and 10 and co-ordinated by digital content director Terence O’Connor.

In this project, the students filmed ten short video segments where they discussed the books they were currently reading or had read.
