Author Visit

9th February 2022

We will be hosting a visit from the award-winning Scottish author Stuart Reid, Wednesday 9th February 2022. Stuart’s first book won the Silver Medal at the Forward National Literature Awards. His books were written to inspire children to read for pleasure, and Stuart’s latest book 'Grandpa Jock and the Incredible Iron-Bru-Man Incident' was launched at the Edinburgh Festival.

There will be a whole school book reading assembly to start the day and then the children in years 1,2,3 and 4 will all participate in an inspiring creative writing workshop in their classes, led by Stuart.

Pupils will also have the opportunity to purchase books on the day, all signed by the author, with a personal dedication to each child. Book prices are £7 each, two for £12, or a school special offer of five books for £20. If your child wishes to purchase a book on the day please send them with an envelope clearly marked with the amount and the correct money inside for the number of books required. You can also send a cheque which is made payable to Stuart Reid.
