Schools & Learning

Between the 18 - 27 February 2021, Paisley Book Festival will be releasing a series of original videos around its Festival theme of Radical New Futures, created by some of the UK’s most talented children and YA authors. The Festival will be encouraging schools across Paisley and Renfrewshire to view these videos in their classrooms. It will be inviting pupils to use the resources accompanying each video and envisage what kind of future they would like to see for themselves and the world at large.

From 18 February, 8 (FREE to access) videos will be available on this page along with an extract from each author’s latest book that can be downloaded for reading and discussing with classmates. Some of the authors have also provided further classroom resources to download.

The Festival team would love to hear what your class thinks about this year’s Paisley Book Festival. Please share your responses on its social media platforms using the hashtags #PBF2021 and #YoungFutures
