Author visits

The King Edward’s School Library organises an author visit each year, specifically for junior schools to attend.

The author visit is aimed at pupils in Key Stage 2. 

Previous authors to have visited include Matt Dickinson (Popcorn-eating Squirrels of the World Unite!), Peter Bunzl (The Cogheart Adventures series), Joe Craig (Jimmy Coates series), Markus Alexander (Charlie Keeper series), Caroline Lawrence (The Roman Mysteries series), and Pete Johnson (How to Train Your Parents).

In the 2021 autumn term, performance poet Karl Nova will be joining us. His collection Rhythm and Poetry reflects on his journey of growth from childhood to adulthood with freshness, sincerity and realism. He is an award-winning poet, heavily influenced by rap lyricism and hip hop.

The event is currently fully booked but if you would like to be added to the waiting list, please email us via:
