Author visits and events

 

Children's Author Lou Treleaven at the reading event at Hay's Galleria

I love doing school visits, writing group workshops and literary festivals.  Please see my page on Contact An Author for details, or email me at lou.treleaven@sky.com to discuss your requirements.

If you are a school, please download my school visit pack 2019 to see what activities and workshops I can offer.  It’s packed full of ideas and resources.

Did you know I also offer free Skype sessions for schools with a reading and question time – check out the details here.

“You were absolutely amazing and we would definitely like to have you back another time! The children all thoroughly enjoyed it and I had very positive feedback from staff too!” Mrs L Wren, St Andrews Lower School, Biggleswade

“Everyone really enjoyed your session – we’ve had fantastic feedback!” Rachael Rogan, organiser of Bedford Children’s Book Festival and owner of Rogan’s Books

“Thanks so much for making World Book Day special and so much fun.” Mrs S Teague, Caddington Village School

“Thank you for the lovely story and craft sessions. Children and families had a great time.” Sue Shead, Bedford Central Library
