Virtual Meet the Author

Our Meet the Author Programme has gone virtual! Register to take part and give your pupils the opportunity to experience a traditional author event from the comfort and safety of their own classrooms. We have a selection of fantastic authors lined up this year who are prepared to answer your pupils' questions. The price is only £50 per school, per author for subscribing schools.
