START PROJECT BOOK LAUNCH
Friday 26 June 2015
We hosted a very special book launch at the Studio at the Festival Theatre yesterday.
As part of this year's START project, over 300 10-12 year old pupils at four Edinburgh primary schools wrote short stories inspired by their visits to see shows at the Festival Theatre including The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time. The short stories have now been published in books for each school: Craigroyston, Forthview, Pirniehall and St David's.
We were delighted to have the P6 and P7 pupils from Forthview Primary here for the launch of Curious Incidents at Forthview, their collection of short stories. We were joined by the book's publisher Mary Thomson (Whitewater Publishing Ltd) and actors Pab Roberts and Emma Reid who read some of the short stories. A tremendous achievement for these talented young authors, and many thanks to all the amazing teachers who supported this project.
