I visit prep and state schools regularly to encourage, to entertain and to help instil a sense of fun and magic into the lives of children. A live talk with a person is far more intriguing than wondering if what if? - if you are an inspiring author? Books entertain and teach and guide and create a familiarity and a resonance between the words and the reader.
I've also lectured from an author stance to the WI. And only two of them fell asleep.
