book signing session update

Ok, so I reviewed what I got in detail about the book signing session and this is what I have so far - you'll notice a lot of things that I have mentioned before have been changed, this was due to the fact that I had only gone briefly through the document to know the major details. So please forgive me if you find it rather odd for the sudden change..

  • Event to be held at Jawarat Al Shatti on Thursday 15th November.
  • Timings: from 10am – 6pm.
  • Aimed at children 4years to 9 years, but with participation of older children too.
  • Objective is to create interest in reading and help fund a public library.
  • There will be a raffle held to raise funds for the library project.
  • Childrens’ Poster Competition of Book Reviews.
  • Craft activities throughout the day.
  • There will be included author book signings and readings.
  • Literacy activities (listening, speaking, writing, reading).
  • Prizes for best storybook character costumes.
  • Refreshments will be available.
  • Event to be advertised through media and leaflets distributed to schools.
  • New and used books to be sold.
  • Other items related to reading to be sold (letter snap, scrabble etc).
And that's pretty much what I have in information about the whole event. Hope you can all make it as it is for a good cause in the end and if you're not in it for raising the money, then just come along with your children or relatives for the fun.

Hope to see you there..
