Author Visits to Schools Ltd is the recommended booking service for several established children’s authors, illustrators, poets, performers and storytellers. School or library visits can be arranged as part of a school book fair, book week, summer school programme or residency, as well as literary festivals, writing projects and one-off events. Further to this, we also offer Advanced Skill Teaching INSET with one of our teaching colleagues.

We provide the books for school and author visits and also arrange signing sessions.
