ReadingZone Live

ReadingZone Live, a partnership between ReadingZone and The London Grid for Learning Trust, aims to bring authors directly into touch with readers via video-conferenced events hosted by schools in London.

Each month pupils meet a different author, hear them talk about their writing and then ask them questions. You can see clips from each of the ReadingZone Live events, below, and find out how to join in our events here: www.rzlinfo.lgfl.net.
