Author Events

Want to journey to the Impossible Places with P.G. Bell? Fancy escaping to Starcross Hall with Claire Barker? Looking to empower your students with Tamsin Winter? Our Usborne Organisers are able to create and plan an author event for your school to bring the magic of books to life.

Contact us now and we’ll put you in touch with your local Organiser to talk through what an Usborne author event might look like for your school. They can help match the right author to your needs and talk you through any costs as well as opportunities to pre-order books plus any other thoughts you might have.

Please note that due to their busy schedules creating more beautiful books for your pupils to read, author availability is not guaranteed and may change seasonally.

Matt Brown was engaging and funny and managed to maintain the interest of 300 children on a very hot afternoon! We are always trying to promote reading for enjoyment and the extracts chosen sparked interest for the pupils, many of whom talked about them following the event.
