Scottish Friendly Children's Book Tour: Orion Lost

Applications for Orion Lost with Alastair Chisholm are now closed. We'll share a recording to watch on demand after the live event takes place.

Author Alastair Chisholm will beam LIVE into your school for this event about Orion Lost, Alastair's hugely gripping ​fast-paced, twist-filled science fiction adventure.

Alastair will discuss his writing, read from Orion Lost, before your valiant pupils take the captain's chair and decide the fate of their own space mission as we play 'You are the Captain'.

Alastair Chisholm will be joined by Dr Alastair Bruce, Dynamic Earth's very own resident Astronomer. Both Alastairs will answer all your questions about ​writing stories, space, planets, space exploration, rockets, and movies like Star Wars!

Following the latest Coronavirus restrictions, this live virtual event will go ahead with a limited schools audience. We'll then share a recording of the event on our website to watch on demand. Applications are open to anyone who wants to join live.
