Gruffalo Julia in Authors Live campaign

POPULAR Bearsden children’s author Julia Donaldson is going to take part in a campaign being run by the Scottish Book Trust to promote reading and writing.

Children from the most remote areas of Scotland will be able to enjoy live events online with the author of best selling Gruffalo books and other famous writers such as Francesca Simon (author of Horrid Henry), Michael Morpurgo (author of War Horse) and many more.

The innovative Authors Live project beams live events of best-selling children’s authors directly into the classroom - helping to bring books to life and make reading more fun.
