Author Visits to NBHS

Here is some information about the author visits happening over the next few weeks.

They’ve been funded by the Scottish Book Trust and by money donated by the PTA for the Library Project.

Alan Bissett is coming in tomorrow (16th) to work with a Higher English class on how to create a piece of writing, whether it is a play, poetry or fiction.  Alan has written multiple novels and plays which have been successful at the Edinburgh Festival, and we are really excited to be welcoming him in to work with our pupils!

Next Thursday (23rd) Kate Leiper is coming in to speak to S3 Art pupils about illustration.  Her work is beautiful and detailed, and hopefully will inspire some creativity.

And, finally, during Book Week Scotland on the 29th November Matthew Fitt is coming in to work with another Higher English class on their creative writing.  Matthew uses and is enthusiastic about the Scots language – maybe we can all learn some new words.

We have books to borrow by both authors and those featuring drawings by Kate Leiper in the school library.
