 If you would like to arrange a visit to your school or literary event, please email thebookactivist@gmail.com for more information.  All aspects of a visit can be arranged, including finding the right author, organising book sales and follow-up activities.  

Authors and illustrators bring to life the stories we know and love. With so many amazing books written and illustrated for children and young people, we are spoilt for choice. We love talking to authors and illustrators and finding out what makes them tick! We've also been fortunate to talk with many wonderful people who work hard to bring stories to children and young people, through some fantastic bookish organisations. Here's a tiny snapshot of some of our bookchats; visit the blog for more!
