Tips for Getting More Out of an Author Visit
Read the author’s book(s) before she visits.
Help students prepare their questions for the author. This is an opportunity to work on writing and interviewing skills.
Teachers have enormous influence. When teachers are excited about an author’s visit, and when they participate in the event themselves, students are excited and involved as well.
Let the author know what your students have been working on—not only in reading, but in other subjects as well.
Consider creating an All-School Read. If everyone (teachers, students, staff, parents, etc.) reads the same book, all kinds of great things happen. Terrific energy! Marvelous questions! Awesome discussions! It’s a great educational and community-building experience.
Please inquire with Vicki (firstname.lastname@example.org), my booking agent, about fees and open calendar dates. I look forward to visiting to your school, library, festival, or conference.
