Holly Smale - Discovering Shakespeare

Holly Smale's first published book, Geek Girl, won the 2014 Waterstones Children's Book Prize and was shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2013. She describes how she went from hating Shakespeare to discovering how his plays were still relevant today and how the language and structure of his plays influenced her own work.
