Lunchtime visitors to Look Who's Talking at Glasgow's King's Theatre may have felt out of place this week as they sat among a crowd of primary pupils.

The Divided City - Glasgow - is striving to become more united through a council programme of anti-sectarian events based on the story of two young Rangers and Celtic supporters. Breslin's novel was the title chosen for the Irish cross-border One Book community reading project, funded by the EU Programme for Peace and Reconciliation.
