On Thursday I went on a mini book tour with Natasha, co-owner of Book Bonding, an independent bookshop in Niddrie. We visited three schools and I did four 30 minute sessions with grade twos.
Friday I joined Mark Wilson, Corinne Fenton and Diana Lawrenson at Buxton for a Literature Festival for children from Buxton, Thornton, Taggerty and Flowerdale. We each set up in a classroom and the groups of children rotated to visit us for stories and activities. Afterwards we shared lunch and were presented with produce from each of the school regions.
At 4 pm, this Friday, I’m doing a book reading at Books and Paper, an independent bookshop in Williamstown to celebrate their first birthday.
