Forest Fridays: Virtual Author Visits
The Forest of Reading is pleased to announce its very successful program perk to showcase the 2019 nominees across the country - Forest Fridays!
Bringing authors into your library, classroom or home can be costly and geographically challenging so we are bringing the nominees to you!
So how will we do this? Authors will host a 40-45 minute author visit virtually and you will be able to connect from your own computer. They will then allow for 15-20 minutes of questions that can be asked through the interactive platform.
With Forest of Reading registrants all over the country, and now internationally, this new program incentive allows every reader to have the opportunity to listen to some of their favourite authors.
