David Macphail, author of the ale-splashing, meat-ripping, hatchet-in-the-head kind of saga that is Thorfinn the Nicest Viking will be taking over the Children’s Library at Aberdeen Central Library on Saturday 17 November, 10.30-11.30.


Anyone in primaries 3 to 5 is encouraged to attend this session but should prepare themselves for the wrath of the Norsemen if they are brave enough to engage. David will read from his books to inspire his audience to create their own Viking characters, which will then become players in an Aberdonian-themed story. The children will work together and explore creative techniques to engage with history and the written word. They will also learn more about dark age Scottish history.


Anyone wishing to attend this free event need to book as places are limited. To book contact 01224 652500 or email


There is a poster attached but if anyone would like paper copies to put out or display, please just let me know – we would be very happy to send some in the post.


Many thanks for your help in promoting this.


Kind regards,
