Events


I visit selected schools, bookshops, conferences, festivals and libraries, both in the UK and abroad, throughout the year, to talk to children about reading, writing and my books.

Depending on your social distancing requirements, I am happy to visit in person or offer an online event instead. These can also be pre-recorded.

To find out more about my online events or to arrange a visit in person, please contact Victoria Rontaler at Rontaler PR & Events.

Q&A


Q

Can I read your books aloud online?

A

If you are a teacher, you may read aloud individual chapters at a time, that are not recorded, via a closed virtual learning environment for pupils only. Please don’t read whole books aloud in one session or record any of your readings. Thank you!

My lockdown reading of The Last Wild is available on my YouTube channel.

 

 

Q

Where can I find classroom resources for your books?

A

There are some excellent free classroom resources for “The Last Wild” provided by Sustainable Learning

I will be putting up more here for all books very shortly, watch this space.

Teachers could sign up to CLPE’s excellent Power of Reading scheme and get a whole teaching sequence based on “The Last Wild”.

 

Q

Do you visit schools?

A

I offer both in person and online visits, depending on your requirements. For more information on how to arrange a visit, the sessions I offer, and fees, please contact:
