• Kilnhurst & Co.

    13 January 2022

    I did my first online schools event of 2022 on Monday, with a load of students from Kilnhurst Primary School, Swinton Queen Primary School, and a couple of others in the South Yorkshire region of the UK.


    While there's no denying that online events aren't quite the same as in-person author visits, they do have some advantages -- not least of which is the ability to pull together several schools at the same time for a single, shared event. They allow me to reach far more students than if I was out on the road and having to move around from school to school to school... And while it's not possible for me to sign books virtually, it IS possible to take selfies, as Mrs H (the organised of this event) proves in the third photo!! :-)


    If YOU are a teacher or librarian, anywhere in the world (or if you're a student who wants to show this to your teacher or librarian), and are interested in contacting me to enquire about the possibility of arranging your own online event, please feel free to reach out and drop me a line using this email address: [email protected]


    I don't charge for online events, and I'm happy to talk about any of my books. I don't say YES to every request, but if you're well organised and can put together a large group of students (either in your own school, or by including others in your area) as the venerable Mrs H did, then you've got a good chance of getting a thumbs up!!!
