Author events help students to deepen their connection to reading and envision their own futures as readers and writers.
Our upcoming author events are mostly FREE experiences to enhance student learning outside of class and require no additional work by teachers.
Share these with your students to spark reading joy, summer reading aspirations, and connections with other readers!
