Meet Our Authors
Scottish Book Trust runs a national programme of events with children's writers, which includes author tours, festivals, writing competitions and exciting activities. The Meet Our Authors programme officially launches on 24th February 2010. The centrepiece is a series of live events that will be broadcast online with the best children’s authors, run in partnership with BBC Scotland Education. A pilot took place in Edinburgh in May 2009 in which Anthony Horowitz spoke to a virtual audience of 11,000 children in 250 Scottish schools and the next is on World Book Day 2010, 4th March, with two events with former children’s laureate Michael Rosen. See SBT's own website, and the National Literacy Trust for more information. You can also find Meet our Authors on Twitter and Facebook.
