ORGANISING YOUR AUTHOR VISIT

Author Events

Meeting a 'real' author or illustrator can be a really motivating and enjoyable experience for children and young people. Young readers don't always realise books are written by 'real people' - or people who are still alive!

Much can be gained from a properly organised school visit in terms of inspiring children's creativity and confidence in their own writing skills. Meeting an author can also help turn children into readers.

Organisations like Read Aloud and Speaking of Books facilitate school visits (they charge a small fee for doing so, in addition to the author's fee) and can help with information on how to make most of your visit.
