Comic Take Over of Falkirk Library – a podcast extra

Hi Folks, we hope you love this podcast as much as we enjoyed making it.  On Saturday 25th November 2017 we held a Comic Take Over of Falkirk Library.

There was a photobooth on the ground floor where you could get your photo taken and put on a background of your choice with the magic of greenscreen technology.

On the first floor we had lego, quizzes and games for the kids.

Finally, on the second floor we had a comic mart with books, comics, artwork, t shirts and badges all for sale from a wide range of friendly knowledgeable comic folk.  Plus we had a special podcast recorded with Sha Nazir (BHP Comics), Clare Forrest (illustrator and the creator of the excellent The Mighty Women of Science) and David Bishop ( one time editor of the Judge Dredd Megazine and The Galaxy’s Greatest Comic 2000 AD, as well as the author of comics, books and screenplays).

This special podcast recording was taken at our Comic TOF and features Sha, Clare and David as they chat about their life in comics, their inspiration and work, and what their favourite meal is.  With a dropped sword and a visit by the Ice King to liven things up – ENJOY (‘cos we certainly did)

Turned off books aged only 8? How you can help

Turned off books aged only 8?  Our Reading Agony from podcast 1 has certainly struck a chord with some listeners, so here it is by itself.

As an addition to this mini podcast,  I’ve popped together a few specific authors and books that I think a child, around this age, turned off reading might like to have read to them, or might want to try reading themselves (go gently and don’t force it, folks).  All these books have been read and loved at Library Love HQ:

Books to read to them / audiobooks:

Comics / Graphic Novels:
