The ‘Bloke of Steel’, Paul Register, is coming to East Lothian.
East Lothian School Libraries have been given funding from the Scottish Government School Library Improvement Fund for various planned activities. As part of this they are offering teaching, and any other interested staff, the opportunity to attend a workshop as detailed below.
The ‘Bloke of Steel’, Paul Register, is coming to East Lothian to work with staff and pupils in the Authority on graphic novels and their use in schools and school libraries.
