BOOKMARK - in Partnership with local Schools
During the past 4 years, BOOKMARK has invited 2/3 authors, each year, to visit local primary schools in the area, eg, New Hill, St Stephens, Rattray, Kirkmichael, Alyth, and Meigle. BOOKMARK is committed to encourage children of all ages, to engage and enjoy reading, listen to stories and question what they have heard.
BOOKMARK Authors in Schools is back!! We are very pleased to announce that on 27 September 3 authors entertained pupils at Coupar Angus Primary School.
Mike Nicholson discussed 3 of his books, Thistle Street, Thistle Sands and Thistle Games.
BOOKMARK favourite, David McPhail entertained P4/5 with his Velda the Awesomest Viking, The Ginormous Frost-giants and The Amazing Illustrated Atlas of Scotland.
Last but not least, Mark A Smith captivated P6/7 pupils with his Slugboy series.
Following on, on the 28th September those pupils had the opportunity to make their own books, with a little help from Quantum Press.
Then... on 16 and 17 November, we did it all again at Burrelton Primary School.
After each event there was a writing competition for all ages with prizes of book tokens from local independent bookshop, Adventure into Books, Blairgowrie.
