Author Week ‘On Tour’

Our amazing author week has been running in Leicester since 2014 and consists of a week long, fun-filled event in which a number of highly inspirational children’s authors take over the Tigers Stadium to work with Leicester pupils. Over the week approximately 5000 children have the opportunity to meet and work with a great selection of authors.

Since 2019-20, Whatever it Takes decided to take the event ‘on tour’ giving a larger number of children the experience an author visit in their own schools. Last year, 54 schools were visited over 9 days by 20 authors: that’s over 9500 pupils with an author experience!

Take a look at last year’s line up!

The same is planned for this year in early February, details to follow.
