Congratulations! Your students are lucky to have you. By bringing an author to your institution, you will make a powerful connection between your students and the written word and help bring books to life for them. Not only do author visits offer a fun break from the classroom routine, they also introduce students to the processes of writing, developing characters, and expressing one’s creativity.
Please complete the online author request form, and allow two to three weeks for a reply. Keep in mind that as the host, it is understood that you will pay all travel costs and expenses in addition to a $1000 honorarium.
When completing the form, please include:
- Three preferred dates for your event;
- Number of presentations desired (maximum 3 per day);
- Estimated attendance; and
- Audience description (students, grade level of students, teachers, librarians, parents, etc.)
I am so happy that you are excited to celebrate books and reading with your students. I look forward to hearing from you!
