What I can do for you
- A talk/performance including readings, songs, chat about his books or poems and the inspirations behind them, with a strong focus on reading for pleasure, and if possible a moderated Q&A session.
- A Q&A/chat session with an individual class – can still include readings and songs, but with more focus on the children’s questions
