Zoom and author events for World Book Day

We’re counting down now to the big day!

Publishers are putting up links for Zoom events and videos, so I’ve tried to collate a few here – remember that you will normally have to sign up for these events, and schools as well as families can sign up.

Starting on Monday 1st, Puffin Virtually Live are doing webinar events with authors

You do have to sign up for these, but it’s free, and you can sign up at home – details here:

David Walliams is hosting an assembly
