Author visits are a wonderful way to support literacy, enrich the reading experience, and inspire students. Even better: they can be done even during virtual/distance learning! But planning a successful visit for your school or library system can seem intimidating or overwhelming.
Join us for a webinar that will give you an overview of what it takes to experience Author Visit Success. We will take you step-by-step through the process of planning and executing a successful author visit, virtually or in person.

Come away with:
• a timeline for planning and sources to explore for funding your author visit
• a variety of strategies to prepare your students for the author visit
• tips on best practices for a successful virtual visit
