Keith Gray joins us for the 100th episode of Authors Live to share his latest, highly original novella, The Climbers – a story that looks at male friendship, rivalry and belonging. In this broadcast, Keith treats us to a reading from The Climbers and speaks on combining your experiences with your imagination to create your own wonderful short stories. Keith is one of the best writers for teenagers that the UK has produced, and excels in finding the remarkable stories that exist in everyday life.
Shorter clips of the event are available on the BBC Scotland Learning website(this will open in a new window).
Looking for more fantastic books for teenage readers? The Climbers is featured on our #ReadScottishTeenBooks resource alongside some other excellent, homegrown titles.
