ReadingZone runs a free, online bookclub for primary schools (Years 3-6), and any class can join our regular events.

We're thrilled that authors Jenny Pearson, Nicola Penfold, Frank Cottrell Boyce and Serena Patel are among those joining us for our regular, *free* online #ReadingZoneBookclub sessions - and we have more to announce! 

At each #ReadingZoneBookclub event, we aim to enjoy some book chat with the classes taking part, meet great authors and discover new books. You might also want to follow up with a full event after meeting one of our authors online!

If you would like to join our events (via Zoom) on Friday afternoons, 2pm - 2.45pm, do get in touch.  [email protected]

Each author will talk about their new book, give a short reading, and cover a creative writing topic. Children will also have the chance to put their questions to the author.  We can also organise discounted, signed books for participating schools.

Get in touch if you want to join any of the following events.
