Catalyst Author Tour 2010

The day before the Catalyst Awards, each author traversed North Lanarkshire schools to speak to groups of teenagers. Here’s a taster of their travels.

Linda Strachan visited St Ambrose High School, Coatbridge and Braidhurst High School, Motherwell.

Paul Dowswell visited St Maurice’s High School, Cumbernauld, and Airdrie Academy.

Nicola Cameron, LRC Manager:  The author visit went really well. The pupils seemed to really enjoy it. Paul Dowswell spoke to a group of about 35 3rd years about his book Auslander and the research involved. Set during the Second World War within Nazi Germany pupils got a taster of what life was like for ordinary Germans who didn’t agree with the Hitler regime.

Tim Bowler visited Kilsyth Academy and Bellshill Academy.
