Get Reddy for Fine events (with some Prue and Doherty!)

Anthony Browne at BETT

If you were on the Scholastic stand on the Saturday at BETT 2011, you’ll have seen the most amazing Anthony Browne stand up and talk Gorilla, the Shape Game and his inspirations for writing both. I was meant to be taking photos, and I struggled as I stood there wowed by it all. From the reaction of the people on the stand, you were wowed too!

After the wonderful reaction we had, we couldn’t stop there, so starting at the Education Show next Friday, we are beginning a series of five events with inspirational speakers and wonderful authors.   Here is the list of events, authors and what they’ll be talking about. We’re very excited, and I hope you will be too. Booking information is at the bottom of this post, so make sure you sign up soon as places are limited!!
