At Boogie Down Books, our core values are joy, justice, and community.

One of the ways we promote our core values is by helping to make sure that ALL young readers get to meet authors. Author events help students to deepen their connection to reading and envision their own futures as readers and writers.

Want to make sure your students have access to author events?
