Author Ben Kane at New Hall School

We are delighted that the author Ben Kane will be speaking at New Hall on the subject of ‘My Journey from Vet to Bestselling Author’’ on Monday 25th April from 4.45 to 5.45 pm. Mr Kane is a former veterinary surgeon turned bestselling historical author who has written about Hannibal and Spartacus amongst other subjects. The last seven of his books have been Sunday Times Top Ten bestsellers, and he has been published in twelve countries.

The talk is open to all students in Years 10-13. Ben’s talk is likely to be of interest not only to those students studying or considering classical subjects, but also those studying English or History or with an interest in travel. Parents are, of course, welcome also.

Please note the following important points: Ben is experienced at speaking in schools (and a parent himself) and will pitch his talk appropriately for the wide age range likely to attend; should you wish to sample his fiction, however, you should be aware that is aimed at adult readers. (Further details are available on his website, Ben will have some books available for purchase at £7 each.
