Adopt an Author

13 Feb 2018

An exciting schools initiative which links local classes with children’s authors to promote reading for pleasure, build self-confidence and inspire creativity. 

After an enjoyable 8 weeks of email exchange the project culminates in a 'Meet your Author' party during the Festival. This year local primary schools: Mile Oak, Benfield, Carden and Stanford Juniors are adopting authors Rob Lloyd Jones, Alex Milway, Imogen White and MG Leonard.

You will be able to read a fascinating selection of their emails on the official blog.If your school would like to take part please contact: [javascript protected email address]
