Live: Q+A with author Anthony Horowitz streamed into schools in Northern Ireland

In the 2014 New Year Honours, Anthony Horowitz received an OBE for services to literature.

Anthony is one of the most popular, influential, inspiring and (occasionally) provocative writers for young people. He’s best known as the author of the number one bestselling ALEX RIDER books.

Anthony has been widely acclaimed for inspiring a generation of teen and pre-teen boys to read – though his work also has a huge female readership.

He’s fiercely championed the work of teachers and school librarians. He’s conducted writing workshops with youth offenders. He’s been called in by government administrations – Labour and Conservative/Liberal – to discuss the secret to getting and keeping kids reading. Earlier this year, he even interviewed Michael Gove (for The Spectator).

Anthony is plotting a playful takeover of school English lessons by broadcasting live to schools across the UK and Ireland with a one-hour digital event, hosted by TV presenter Barney Harwood.
