School visits, real and virtual
September 6th, 2012
Path of Beasts comes out in Australia on October 1st and in the US on October 9th. Later in October, I’m going to Sydney and Brisbane to visit some schools. I don’t yet know which ones – the publisher is organising it.
But what I wanted to say was this – if I can’t get to your school, because you’re somewhere else in Australia, or in the US, or anywhere else in the world, don’t forget that we could always organise a VIRTUAL visit. It’s not the same as a visit in person, but it’s almost as good (and better in some ways, because I could show you where I write, and maybe get my cat to join in the conversation). And of course you could still talk to me, and ask me questions, and I could talk to you and your class about imagination and the river of ideas that flows around the world, and how to dip your hand into it and catch an idea, the way you might catch a fish.
If you’d like to do this, talk to your teacher or your librarian, and get them to send me a message by leaving a comment below. Then I can email them and we can set something up.
