Boy laughing at a Book Festival event

Join us to launch the 2021 Baillie Gifford Schools Programme

Wed 26 May, 5pm-6.30pm: Live, free and online

In this exclusive – and free – virtual event, our new Children and Schools Programme Director Rachel Fox will talk you through the fantastic events we have lined up for primary and secondary schools in our FREE August programme. Then get a sneak-peek of what to expect with special mini-events from Maisie Chan – author of the hilarious Danny Chung Does Not Do Maths – and Patrice Lawrence, who joins us for two events this August to share her much-celebrated thought-provoking book Rat; and Happy Here, a joyous anthology of stories by Black British authors.

You will find out about our FREE online learning resources, which will accompany each event in the programme, as well as how to register your class to receive FREE books when you sign-up to watch one of our events. There will be plenty of time to ask questions at the end!

Spaces are limited so be sure to book your space here, and feel free to share this with any interested colleagues. We look forward to seeing you there!
