Book events feature in the annual calendar of many primary and secondary schools and can be important highlights in the year for the children, the school library and the school itself. Organising and managing a successful event is always stimulating, but is also time consuming and often challenging. This valuable publication looks at a range of the key issues involved, including funding, planning and publicity, and finding authors and other guests; and it stresses the importance of feedback and reflection. There are case studies from primary and secondary schools throughout the British Isles, and four appendices including a Book Event Checklist, a Book Event Budget Sheet, and a list of useful addresses with websites.
