Listening to read-aloud books and discussing with authors support children’s literacy and boosts their imagination. Listening to novellas and sharing the experience can be an empowering experience to all, independent of age. This is why we provide author visits to schools, day care centers and libraries, as well as to private and cultural events. The Reading Centre brings the authors and audiences together, facilitating the visits. We suggest authors to audiences, contact the authors and book the visits. We also make sure the visits run smoothly by taking care of scheduling, agreements, invoicing and other practicalities. So far, our service is the only one of its kind in Finland.
In total, we have more than 1000 author visits to schools, libraries and events every year, with hundreds of authors.
