About the Event

Six days (Sun 27 Sept to Fri 2 Oct 2020) of 25+ events, delivered digitally into schools and homes.

The Reading is Magic Festival brings you an all-star line-up of authors and illustrators for six days of free digital events for schools and families from 27 September to 2 October. Each event is labelled according to age suitability. Events include storytelling, draw-alongs and talks about topics including the environment, representation in books and the black curriculum.  

Inspired by UK Waterstone’s Laureate Cressida Cowell’s key message “reading is magic and magic is for everyone” book festivals across the globe have teamed up to create an online festival so that young people don’t have to miss out on seeing their favourite authors and illustrators this year.
