The Society of Authors has completed  research on the benefit of author visits for literacy and reading for pleasure. The report also recognises the importance of school librarians in organising author visits.

See the results here.

From the Society of Authors:

Nicola Solomon, Chief Executive of the Society of Authors, has written to Sir Michael Wilshaw, Ofsted’s Chief Inspector, presenting this evidence in order to encourage Ofsted to acknowledge the importance of school libraries and validate this by making it part of their inspections process.
