Scottish Friendly Children's Book Tour: Louise Baillie on International Women's Day

Join Louise Baillie, author of Spectacular Scottish Women, for an exciting virtual event on International Women's Day!

Louise Baillie is the author of Spectacular Scottish Women, which introduces 30 iconic women from Scotland's past and present with thoroughly researched and vibrant, engaging fact files. Get to know some seriously inspiring athletes, musicians, scientists, queens, activists, models, and much more.

During this virtual event, Louise will introduce a handful of the amazing women in her book, before going on to talk more specifically about the sportswomen featured – who they are, what they have achieved, and why there are so many inspirational figures that we may not have even heard of, including the ONLY Scottish person to have won a football world cup!

Pupils will be encouraged to reflect on spectacular Scottish women that they admire personally – either from the sphere of celebrity, or from their own lives – and will have the chance to ask Louise any questions they may have.
