READ Gloucestershire events

Throughout 2021, Read for Good will be hosting a series of fabulous author and illustrator events, to inspire and enthuse your pupils about reading.

There will be something for all ages and tastes, and pupils will have the chance to send in questions to be answered directly by the author themselves. Most events will take place on the last Friday of each month (except March), and will be accessed by clicking a simple link. You can access the event at a time to suit your school.

Research shows that seeing an author talk about their work can really encourage children to read themselves.
