How NOT to run an author vist in school

Joan Lennon has had a bad experience, detailed on An Awfully Big Blog Adventure. My favourite (in a bad way) memory of having a class visit to meet an author (a very famous one) when I worked in public libraries ended with the author complaining that the teacher sat there looking as if she "had a pickle up her bum". Couldn't disagree.


  1. Thanks - the first question the children asked the author was "Why do you have swear words in your book?" Detected the teacher's prompting behind this too!
