World Book Week
27 February to 3 March 2023
Welcome to Julia Edwards Books!
Schools in the UK will be celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 2 March this year. Like many authors, Julia is very busy at this time of year, but she is currently offering schools in Hampshire and Wiltshire the possibility of booking author workshops in the week of World Book Day.
A typical day with Julia begins with a one-hour whistle-stop tour through history for KS2, introducing Julia's Scar Gatherer series and featuring an abundance of quirky, fascinating and occasionally grisly facts from history. This session gives children a chance to test their historical knowledge in a format that is fun and engaging, and to ask Julia questions of their own.
The remainder of the day is spent in workshops with individual classes in KS2 and visits to Reception and KS1 classes, in which Julia shares some of her favourite books with the children.
Julia only accepts full day bookings during World Book Week. Her rates are currently:
£380 per day plus travel @ £0.30 per mile.
If you would like a workshop on any topic not already included on the workshop list, please let Julia know when you enquire. There is no additional charge for this. To see where Julia has worked recently, click here.
