crime writers set to take centre stage at Inverness today
Pupils’ colourful start to book festival
Children from throughout the Highlands created a big frieze of colourful characters as part of the first event in this year’s Inverness Book Festival.
Youngsters from the Moray Firth School, outside Inverness, and Rosehall Primary and Altnaharra Primary, both in Sutherland, painted pictures of butterflies, worms and flowers during the Itchy Coo workshop at Eden Court Theatre, Inverness, yesterday morning.
The frieze created during the session, led by authors James Robertson and Karen Sutherland, is on display in the theatre’s foyer. Elsewhere in the theatre, youngsters took part in a Rhymetime workshop with a team from the Bookstart programme, which aims to inspire parents and carers to enjoy books with their children.
