Author and events

I have been doing a few author visits although the face-to-face visits have stopped on a temporary basis due to Covid-19.

My last visit in November was to Kobi Nazrul Primary School in Tower Hamlets. I have to say, I was overwhelmed with the reception that I received from the school.

Please let me know if you would like to book a visit for 2022. Visits can either be online or, from spring, face-to-face.

I can do:

  • assemblies
  • author readings
  • literacy workshops
  • author Q&A sessions
  • keynote speeches at a variety of events, such as libraries, festivals, after-dinner speeches, etc.

‘We are grateful to Laura for the generosity in sharing her own story; the challenges and the triumphs provided pause for thought and reflection for our children and our staff.

There were many threads to Laura’s story which our children could relate to; so equally, seeing her success opened the flood gates for all of the possibilities.  It encouraged our children to ‘dream big’!

Thank-you Laura for the inspiration you provided our children at Kobi Nazrul!’ – Belinda King, Headteacher Kobi Nazrul Primary School 

‘The children were starstruck and were so overwhelmed! They thoroughly enjoyed Laura’s visit.  All our children were really inspired – as were the adults’ Shamima, Year 2 Teacher Kobi Nazrul

‘We can’t believe Laura visited our school – we can’t wait to read more of her books!’ – Year 2 child Kobi Nazrul Primary School

‘Laura was so kind and she answered all of our questions’ – Year 2 child, Kobi Nazrul Primary School
