Congratulations! Your students are lucky to have you. By bringing an author to your school, 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 visit request form and allow up to one week 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 an honorarium. (Title I Schools are exempt from the honorarium requirement.)
I am so happy that you are excited to celebrate books and reading with your students. I look forward to hearing from you! For additional resources, please visit Scholastic’s Author Visits Program.
