I want to conduct "Meet the Author" Program for all classes in School. Please give your suggestion and idea to conduct that Program.
First finalise with the author his day and timing
communicate the same in the place where the talk is going to take place
ask author whether he will be carrying copies of his books
ask what will be time duration of the talk
what is the requirement for conducting such sessions premises, lights, board, any special writing material, speakers, mike etc
ask whether he is charging some thing or its promotional one.
if so is the case, provide him with token of love from your institutions behalf.
ask how many people are following him for the talk from his side
get in the touch with the author in case any timely changes arise.
Hope this was of helpful to you for a while.You can get in touch more further details.
Thank You for your valuable suggestions. Is the students shall go through the book before the Programme
In the case if books are made avaliable before the Author Talk, students can read it and place the order or it can be after the session. In my opinion books should be shown after the session as it has great impact on students, tell them to carry few copies for viewing. After the session students can get autographed copies from author.
