The Reading Agency Presents is our flagship virtual events programme, born out of the need to keep people connected and engaged with reading during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Since our first event in May 2021, we have welcomed over 19,000 viewers with hundreds more watching our recordings on YouTube page. Our virtual events have remained an invaluable opportunity for people to discover brilliant books and meet authors. It has also enabled us to bring writers and illustrators to audiences across the country (and the world!) using a single link, continuing out mission to amplify voices and grow new audiences. Best of all - they are all completely free!
This year we are focusing on running interactive and engaging virtual events for Key Stage 2 classes. Our brilliant events this year have included an invention and creation session with Shane Hegarty, a storymakers session with Liz Flanagan and an interactive writing workshop with Swapna Haddow.
