A while ago I wrote about a free online author event being organised by Scottish Book Trust, featuring Scotland's National Poet Liz Lochhead. Well those lovely people at Scottish Book Trust are up their tricks again, and this time they have a really beauty for you - none other than actor, comedian, talent show judge and writer of brilliant children's books, David Walliams. Here are the details:
You have seen him on your TV, now watch him on your computer! Multi-talented funny man David Walliams will be talking about his hilarious new book Gangsta Granny. Guaranteed to cause an epidemic of smiles to breakout across the UK.
The event will be streamed live to audiences across the UK at 11am on Thursday, 10th May. It will then become available to watch again for free by Thursday, 17th May for everyone worldwide!
You can join tens of thousands of pupils across the UK watching the event live.
Parents, readers and fans of David can watch the event by going directly to the BBC website at 11am on Thursday, 10thMay: http://www.bbc.co.uk/scotland/learning/authorslive/
