Supported by the BBC and Arts Council England, it’s a collaborative response to the many book festivals postponed because of the current lockdown situation.
The Borders Book Festival nominated Jill Calder and this afternoon she ran a wonderfully hands-on event focused on the illustrations for her stunning picture book, Robert the Bruce, written by James Robertson. By the end of it we’d all made a book! (A trouser book, if you please…)
Fortunately, because the event was on-line, you can access it even if (like me) you missed the start.
It’s a brilliant programme – all kinds of genres and readerships reflected in an imaginative cast of writers and illustrator.
Do join in – from the comfort of your own homes! (Bring some crayons and pencils – any colours, paper and a pair of scissors.)
