TYPES OF EVENTS I HAVE DONE: Literary Festivals, school visits, libraries, workshops

SCHOOL'S PREPARATION: After a discussion with the school about how they would like the day to go and what they would like the pupils to get from the event, I would like teachers to introduce one of my books and perhaps look at my website prior to my visit.

MY PREPARATION: My events are always very interactive and I enjoy bringing clothes, relevant to the book I'm talking about so that the children can dress up. This is always great fun.
