A special Authors Live from Scottish Book Trust for World Oceans Day (Saturday 8th June 2019) will be taking place on Thursday 6th June 2019.
Lauren St John is the author of the bestselling White Giraffe series. The series is inspired by her childhood in Zimbabwe, Africa, where she grew up surrounded by horses, cats, dogs… and a pet giraffe! A passionate conservationist, Lauren is an ambassador for the Born Free Foundation and founder of the Authors4Oceans anti-plastics campaign. Lauren will talk about Kat Wolfe Takes the Case, the latest book in her Wolfe and Lamb mystery series, as well as sharing her Authors4Oceans campaign.
Elizabeth Laird is the multi-award-winning author of several much-loved children’s books including The Garbage King, The Fastest Boy in the World and Dindy and the Elephant. She has been shortlisted for the prestigious Carnegie Medal six times. Elizabeth will speak about Song of a Dolphin Boy, a story that combines folklore, adventure and ecology to explore why we need to protect our oceans.
