Here’s what’s coming up during the summer holiday season…

August is Edinburgh International Book Festival time…

On Friday 18th, scientist Doug MacDonald and I turn Dracula Detectives, with our interactive workshop. There’s been an outbreak of vampirism in the village of Losthope (handily situated in Charlotte Square). Track the disease back to its origin and discover which audience member is Dracula! No fangs required….

On Monday 21st in The Word Scientific I’m involved in a discussion, together with physics teacher Jennie Hargreaves, on getting complex science ideas across to young readers, and how design, illustration, narrative voice and humour can help the process.

On Friday 25th I’m leading a Reading Workshop on Brave New World, a book that seems to defy its age to become ever more topical.

Doug MacDonald and I finish off with a Dracula Detectives event as part of Schools Gala Day on the 29th, before climbing back into our coffins until next time…
