Award winning children’s author, Dominic Barker, will raise smiles in schools across the Western Isles with the Scottish Friendly Children’s Book Tour from the 20th to the 24th of September.
Visiting schools across the Isle of Lewis, Isle of Harris, North Uist, South Uist and Castlebay, teacher turned author Barker will be bringing along his lively catalogue of work that will split sides and send chills in both the young and the young at heart.
Barker, whose book Blart: The Boy Who Didn’t Want to Save the World won the prestigious Stockton Children’s Book of the Year Award in 2007, has penned eight children’s titles. His tales dart from teenage detectives to mad professors, from wizardry to talking monkeys, and will be a sure fire hit with all young adventurers. Also on tour, Barker will bring his latest release: Adam and the Arkonauts in which the unlikely hero Adam is the world’s last hope.
The Scottish Friendly Children’s Book Tour is run by Scottish Book Trust, Scotland’s leading agency for the promotion of literature, reading and writing. The tour aims to give children across the UK, even those in the most rural and remote areas, access to the best children’s authors free of charge. A dedicated Facebook page has been set up to keep fans up to date with the latest authors’ news and tours at www.facebook.com/Meet-Our-Authors.
The Scottish Friendly Children’s Book Tour has visited all 32 Scottish local authorities in the last three years, bringing the best children’s authors directly to their readers.
