An exciting schools initiative which links classes with children’s authors to promote reading for pleasure, build self confidence and inspire creativity. After an enjoyable eight weeks of email exchange the project culminates in a 'Meet your Author' party during the Festival. 

This year: Carden, Brunswick, Benfield and Cardinal Newman schools are adopting authors Lorraine Gregory, Jennifer Killick, Alex Milway and Patrice Lawrence. You will be able to read a fascinating selection of their emails on the official blog:
