The SLA has just published another in our Voices series of shorter titles written from a personal perspective: Teddington School Book Week by Rachel Bide.
Teddington School holds a successful and high profile biennial book week. In 2012 the school worked with fifteen authors over the space of a week. Here librarian Rachel Bide, who masterminded the project, explains how she managed it all. The reasoning, planning and general organisation of the week are clearly explained. Ideas for the choice of authors, promotion and advertising, engaging with parents, timetabling and scheduling, finding suitable accommodation and book sales all receive a mention.
If you're thinking of doing similar, even if on a smaller scale, do read this excellent account - many sample documents are also included to show it can be done.
Available now from the SLA - order via the SLA website.
