Book a Chat

You might not know who is the right speaker for you – I invite you to chat through what your aims for a visit are and then I can make a recommendation once I have listened to you tell me about your school and the children in it – or the event you’re running, if it’s a training session, conference or festival.

Use the calendar below to find a time when we can talk – either on the phone, or on zoom (whichever is best for you).

Speaking of Books are exactly what Wandsworth Prep School needed. They were organised, efficient and very responsive. We were particularly impressed with their author recommendation. We needed an author who would appeal to and have a rapport with the whole school in a virtual setting. Speaking of Books suggested Jeremy Strong, who was brilliant with all the children and professional to deal with from an organisational point of view. We are very grateful to Speaking of Books for managing the whole process and eradicating potential difficulties. An easy and stress-free experience.

Head of Lower School, Wandsworth Prep School

Ellie understands what schools need and is brilliant at explaining what ‘her’ authors and artists do so that children can really enjoy and get the most out of live events. She’s risen to the challenge and helped make virtual events a rewarding experience, too.

Ellie is excellent at briefing the authors and artists she works with so that they have the information they need and a well-timed reminder.

Ellie is a joy to work with!

Last summer, Rebecca Smith and I started talking about how brilliant it would be if there were a book bank facility in supermarkets - something super simple and accessible 📚🌻

This week - thanks to @Morrisons @TeresaCremin and @OpenUni_RfP - it has become a REAL THING 📚🌻
