"Meeting an author in real life can fundamentally alter a child’s relationship to books and reading."
Authors are professionals and need to be paid for their time. However, with our smart ecommerce system, we can offset the cost - or maybe remove it completely - with advance parent purchases of signed books.
Parents log in and pay for the signed copies; we record the total and deduct it from the bill. When Iain arrives at your school, he will deliver the pre-signed books for you to distribute.
