A quote from Jacqueline Wilson about author visits:
I must have visited many hundreds of schools over the last thirty years. I think author visits are a foolproof way of engaging children and encouraging them to become keen readers. Almost every week a young man or woman comes up to me in the street and says
‘You once gave a talk at my Primary school and made me realise reading can be fun.’
It’s fantastic to feel you can have this effect on young people. I know nearly all authors enjoy visiting schools and find it stimulating and enjoyable. However, it can be a bit of a hassle for busy people to arrange successful visits – so it’s brilliant that Authors Aloud UK will do it all for you.
