Book Week Scotland 2017

The amazing East Lothian Library Service set up a programme for me to visit a library each day from Monday 27 November to Saturday 2 December, to meet people for a chat over a cuppa and biscuits, and to read a few poems from ‘Salt & Soil’.  The exception was Thursday, when a group of P5s from Campie School, Musselburgh came to the library for my presentation on the voyage with clipper ship City of Adelaide over the winter of 2013/14.  It’s so lovely to share that experience, and the pupils were absolutely brilliant.


Scottish Book Trust Book Week Scotland 2017

I am very grateful to East Lothian Libraries Service for setting up a ‘Salt & Soil’ Book Tour during Book Week Scotland, 27 November – 3 December.  During the week I shall be visiting several libraries who put in a request for a visit following an email communication from the Service.

A special request came from Musselburgh Library for a talk on my voyage with clipper ship City of Adelaide for a group of P5 pupils.  I am so looking forward to giving them a presentation with images from the voyage.
