Exactly one month from today, the Bookchat Roadshow will be rolling into town!
The Roadshow brings together a whole host of wonderful people to inspire parents and carers with ideas for supporting their children’s reading for pleasure and creative writing. Visiting Harlands Primary, in Haywards Heath on 20th July, it’s an event not to be missed! After the success and positive feedback of the inaugural event last year, it was clear to me that parents and carers welcome this support. We all like to be inspired, especially when it comes to helping our children.
Nikki Sheehan, the Carnegie nominated author, will be sharing her experiences and talking about creative writing. The team behind Scoop Magazine will be talking all about their love of stories and how they encourage creativity. I’ll be sharing lots of ideas for encouraging a love of reading. And most exciting of all, Nikki Sheehan will be joined by Jenny McLachlan, Jamie Thomson and A. F.Harrold for an author panel bookchat. I cannot wait to ask our fabulous panel to share their insight into stories, reading and writing.
As if this wasn’t enough, there will be a group of brilliant local organisations exhibiting with advice for parents and carers covering a whole range of areas from creativity through nature to dyslexia. And all parents and carers attending will receive a wonderful goody bag filled with giveaways from children’s publishers. So what are you waiting for?! Register online now!
