Authors in schools: how to organise and host a successful author visit

Do you want to inspire your students by hearing from an author? Author visits to schools and libraries are exciting incursion opportunities, with potential benefits in reading and writing. It can be a challenge to ensure that the cost and time commitment have immediate and long term benefits for students.

This session will help teachers and librarians make the most of an author visit through planning, implementation and follow up.

Author and educator Dr Sally Murphy will help you get the most out of a visit, from finding and booking an author to maintaining the momentum after the visit.
