Kirsty Applebaum writes for the 9-12 age group and her books, TROOFRIEND and THE MIDDLER raise important issues about friendship, loyalty and what it means to be human.  Her online talks and workshops will include a bit of background information to both books, and are crafted for each specific audience.

Online Introduction

What I can do for you

My virtual presentations can include:

Virtual talk (30-40 mins) Particularly suited to Years 5&6.

This session includes a talk about me and my books plus a Q&A. It also includes a short reading. I’m happy for the school to request in advance which of my books they would like me to read from.

The session is suitable both for classes that have all pupils in school and for those that have some (or all) pupils at home. I encourage pupils at home to participate in the Q&A via the Chat function.

The session lasts 30-40 minutes depending on how many questions are asked in the Q&A. It is suitable for groups of any size, within the limits of the digital platform used. I am happy working with Zoom and am able to host Zoom sessions (up to 100 participants) but I’m also open to using other platforms if preferred.

I politely request that my visits are not recorded, but am very happy for photographs to be taken.
