I've heard that authors will do book group visits. Has anyone had an author come and talk to them? If so, was it a success? Our group is quite interested in the idea but not sure how to go about it. Any ideas?

Hi

I think you have to pick your author carefully (I expect you've thought of that!). I heard about a group that had an excruciating couple of hours trying to be tactful to an author about a book that they all hated.

Perhaps your local library runs events with authors?

Thanks Clare. I'll try our local library and make sure it's an author we all like!
