Events & School Visits

More HouseLucy Strange regularly speaks at literature festivals, from the prestigious Emirates Airlines Festival of Literature, to smaller, local festivals such as the Wealden Literary Festival in Kent. In October 2019 she spoke at the Cheltenham Literature Festival on a ‘History Girls’ panel with Emma Carroll and Hilary McKay. 2020 events scheduled so far include Chiddingstone Castle Literary Festival on Friday 8th May and Barnes Children’s Literature Festival in June.


Lucy visits schools across the country to talk to young readers about her stories, about writing and reading, and her journey from bookworm to published author: how – no matter what your dreams are – they really can come true . . .


Lucy has some limited availability for school events in the coming school year (2019 to 2020). She prioritises local schools and schools that are reading her books. Please contact Lucy for fees and further information.


School events can include:

  • Author talk (to whole year groups)
  • Q&A
  • Book signing
  • Interviews with school magazine reporters or reading groups
  • Creative writing workshops
