Wake them up with a Tom Palmer event

Tom Palmer is the top selling author of several books for Barrington Stoke including Over the Line, Ghost Stadium, Secret FC, and the Rugby Academy, Wings and Defenders series. A popular author, Reading Champion, and specialist in motivating boys to read, Tom travels all over the UK to schools, festivals and libraries to perform his immensely popular and engaging talks. With his new historical fiction title, Armistice Runner, launching in September it’s the perfect time to plan a visit to your school.

Tom can host:

  • Fun and interactive talks that promote engagement with the events of the First World War and Tom’s process for researching and writing about this time period.
  • Creative writing workshops that cover how to write and research historical fiction for a wide range of student abilities.

These events are available to be booked as a full day event and can be shared with another school/library in the area.

Tom is also happy to run sessions at a local historic setting or museum.

Additional materials supplied

Tom and Barrington Stoke are happy to supply an advance pack of materials, activities, sample chapters and posters.
