Our 6th, 7th and 8th Class Sek I and German DF Students had an exciting morning as we welcomed A.K Bender, the author of the popular German book series ‘Erkental’ in St. Kilian’s yesterday, November 29th, 2022. Miss Bender read two chapters out of her first volume ‘Erkental – Der verschwundene Alchemist‘ and answered the many questions the students had between and after the readings. At the end, there was even time for some signing. The students and teachers were delighted to receive a personal dedication in their own book copy from the author.
The Erkental books tell the story of a 13-year-old Boy named Endri and his friends who embark on a journey through the mysterious and enchanting world of Erkental and discover that they possess very special talents along the way. Ms Bender published her first Erkental book end of 2020 and has recently released the second ‘Erkental – Die Macht der Elemente‘ book. If you are interested in the books, you can order them directly from the publisher ‘Der kleine Buchfink‘ or on Amazon. Congratulations Ms Bender and thank you for your visit. It was an enjoyable morning not only for the students. Also a big Thank you to Ms Josch and the German Department for organising this joint event between the Primary and Secondary school.
