Following on from Book Week Scotland, we look forward to welcoming Barbara Henderson to the school on Tuesday afternoon.
This Tuesday afternoon (26th November,) children’s writer Barbara Henderson will visit P4-7 to talk about her smuggling novella Black Water.
Barbara is the author of three children’s novels and a novella:
• Highland Clearances novel Fir for Luck, based on real events in Sutherland
• Victorian boy-on-the-run tale Punch, which begins with the fire which destroyed the original Inverness Victorian Market in 1889, set against a lively backdrop of travelling entertainers
• Wilderness Wars, a contemporary eco-thriller for children asking: ‘What if Nature fights back?’
• Black Water, a smuggling novella set in 1792 and featuring the poet Robert Burns
RRP for all books is £6.99 each, but if desired, children will be able to buy a book of their choice for £6.00 , and have it personally signed by the author on the day of the visit.
