In 2015 our schools and families programme included school visits by authors Lari Don, Robert J Harris, Ross Mackenzie and Emily Dodd. Over 200 children participated in events. Ross Mackenzie and Emily Dodd delivered sessions for families on Saturday.

This year, authors Jonathan Meres, Andy Briggs, Stuart Reid and storytelling chef Mrs Mash will be entertaining children across North Ayshire as part of the 2016 festival.
