This year we are delighted (and excited) to offer our schools a virtual author visit for Book Week Scotland with the wonderfully talented and inspiring Tom Palmer. Tom is the hugely popular author of many books featuring war, spies, history, the RAF, ghosts, detectives, rugby and football. It was a love of reading about football in newspapers and magazines as a youngster that eventually turned Tom into a book lover too. He is well known for his involvement in reader development, with his books often engaging 'reluctant readers', and has written several books for publisher Barrington Stoke.

His latest book, After the War, is based on the real life events around the child concentration camp survivors who came to the Lake District nearly 75 years ago, known as the Windermere Boys. With probing questions provided by our school pupils, we can't wait to hear Tom talk about his books, writing, and of course football!
