Book Week Scotland Author Visit

We started our Book Week Scotland celebrations by inviting author Barbara Henderson into school. Barbara was here to talk to four S1 classes about her eco-thriller Wilderness Wars. The novel asks the question: what if nature fights back? and is a fast-paced adventure story which explores our relationship with nature. Barbara told us about the difficulty in getting published, the inspiration behind the book, read the opening chapter and involved pupils in some very lively interactive challenges. It was a really entertaining session. Feedback from pupils has been extremely positive
