Virtual Author Visits: Forest Fridays

The Forest of Reading is pleased to announce its very successful program perk to showcase current nominees across the country – Forest Fridays!

Bringing nominees into your library, classroom or home can be costly and geographically challenging so we are bringing them to you!

So how will we do this? Nominees will host a 40-45 minute author visit virtually and you will be able to connect from your own computer. They will then allow for 20-25 minutes of questions that can be asked through the interactive chat platform.

With Forest of Reading registrants all over the country, and now internationally, this program incentive allows every reader to have the opportunity to listen to some of their favourite authors.

All Connection Instructions and Links will be available through the password website. You must be a current program registrant to receive access to this website.

Here are the details:
