Watch Book Festival Events on Glow TV

Did you know that we stream a number of Edinburgh International Book Festival Events Live on Glow TV?

If you cannot get along to see live schools events in Edinburgh, some events in the Baillie Gifford Schools Programme are live-streamed through Glow and a selection can be watched online after the event on Glow TV.

We’ve selected two great events that you can watch live on Glow, or Watch Again on Glow TV if you miss them:

The Horrible Science Show with Nick Arnold & Tony De Saulles
Mon 22 Aug, 1.30-2.30pm

Learn some mind-blowing facts about chaotic chemistry, bloody biology and frightful physics as the Horrible Science books are brought to life with Nick Arnold’s scary stories and explosive experiments and Tony De Saulles’ crazy cartoons (volunteers may be required…!). Expect a lot of laughs, a feast of foul facts and some seriously squishy science.

In Those We Trust with Keren David & Alex Wheatle
Weds 24 Aug 12.15-1.15pm

Join authors Keren David and Alex Wheatle for a discussion about diversity and keeping it real in YA fiction. Alex’s latest novel Crongton Knights is about a boy growing up on a tough south London estate, while Keren’s Cuckoo is about a child star who has fallen on hard times and becomes homeless. Find out what inspired these two hard-hitting, but ultimately moving, novels.
