An exciting schools initiative which links classes with authors to promote reading for pleasure, build self confidence and inspire creativity.
Classes spend an enjoyable 8 weeks speaking with their author over email, giving them a chance to ask questions, develop ideas and learn from each other. The project culminates in a 'Meet Your Author' party during the Festival, where the young people spend some time with their author at a creative celebration.
This year schools: Carden, Patcham Juniors, Peter Gladwin, and BHASVIC are adopting authors Vashti Hardy, Stewart Foster, Ross Montgomery and Bethan Roberts. You will be able to read a fascinating selection of their emails on the official blog: adoptanauthor.wordpress.com
