I will be performing my show My Father & Other Superheroes for two schools as part of the Ilkley Literature Festival. They work with a wide range of schools across Yorkshire and beyond, and it’s a fantastic opportunity for pupils to hear from nationally known authors. Dawn Cameron the Audience Development and Outreach Worker has had a very successful year building the Festival’s relationship with local schools.
As part of the ‘Authors in Schools’ Programme gives children of all ages the opportunity to meet a wide range of children’s and young people’s authors. We work closely with our partner schools and Bradford and Leeds Library Services to develop events which enthuse and engage children, from large events for whole year groups and smaller creative writing workshops.
