Simon Mayo (2012 event)
The award-winning broadcaster has been listened to by millions who rely on his insightful film reviews and music choices but he’s just turned his talents to writing. His first book for young readers is entitled, and stars, Itch, an accident prone, science obsessed fourteen year old boy. Itch has a slightly explosive hobby – he collects chemicals but when he discovers a previously unknown element, he attracts the attentions of some unpleasant sorts. In this event, recorded live at Edinburgh International Book Festival, Simon Mayo talks about his new book.
