Meet our Authors: forthcoming programme from Scottish Book Trust

Scottish Book Trust has announced its latest Meet our Authors programme as follows:

12/05/11: James Mayhew This session will focus on visual literacy. See our books by James here and, if you are interested in visual literacy, you might also be interested in our Teaching with Visual Images page.

16/06/11: Andy Stanton This session will focus on reluctant readers. Again, we have several books by Andy, best known for the Mr Gum series, and we also have a page on reluctant readers.

29/09/11: David Almond This session will focus on creative writing. We have lots of books by this prize winning author. His latest, My name is Mina is a prequel to Skellig, perhaps his most famous.

01/12/11: Kjartan Poskitt This session will focus on maths. Make maths fun with the author of  Murderous maths and other titles. 

Not sure if these are for you? Try Meet our Authors out by watching the hilarious event with Eoin Colfer on the SBT site. Watch this blog for more information nearer the time of each session and I also advise signing up with the SBT newsletter which highlights different parts of their work each month. In March, as well as talking about this programme, the newsletter had fun book stuff, World Book Night reviews and new song and rhyme videos.
