Joseph Delaney Schools Event

Scottish Book Trust was very excited to bring award-winning author Joseph Delaney to Edinburgh for a special schools event in February 2016!

Joseph Delaney is best known as the author of the best-selling series The Wardstone Chronicles. His hugely popular books have won him young fans around the world.  

Packed with adventure, folklore and legend, Joseph’s books are inspired by the stories and landscapes of his home in Lancashire. Joseph talked to pupils from five local schools about why he became an author, what inspires his writing and where he gets his ideas. He also introduced them to one of his latest book Arena 13 and answered their burning questions about his books, writing and everything else!
