Edinburgh Festival: A Peculiar History of Scotland
A Peculiar History of Scotland at the Book Festival. Full house and a brilliant session with a planted actor in the audience, who played an American tourist. It's published by a frind of mine, who owns the best children's publishing house in the UK. The kids in the audience were full of answers, some full of themselves. The great things about young children is that they’re willing to give it a go. Who cares if Robert Burns wasn’t a ‘painter, and his paintings became famous only after he had died’.
