Events and author visits in schools and libraries, age 12 +
I’m happy to visit schools, YA and adult book clubs, libraries and take part in residencies and festivals anywhere in the UK. For schools and venue visits in Scotland, I can be booked through the Scottish Book Trust Live Literature Programme.
Black Snow Falling provides cross-curricular themes. I offer:
- Interactive ‘Story of the book’ presentation, touching on the themes below, with images, video, readings from the novel. Themes include: feminism, sexism as prejudice, subverting masculine and feminine archetypal journeys, #HeForShe, fighting the ‘monsters’ of today, early science as ‘heresy’, fantasy, Jung and the shadow self / does evil exist?
- Creative writing workshops for S2+ inspired by the novel.
These are supported by inspiring activity suggestions.
Please get in touch to discuss what would work best for you.
