Kick Starting Author Involvement with Your School

Oct 18, 2017 6:00pm

Members: $0.00
Standard: $6.99


Authors of books for teens are "hot." Their visits to schools inspire reading – and questions! Your library is The Place to build book excitement because your students want to know everything about their favorite writers. Four YA authors – Susan Dennard, Danielle Paige, Mindee Arnett, and Natalie Richards – and school librarian Dorcas Hand (Houston, TX) – will present proven ways to connect your students, teachers, and school to writers who will excite them, encourage them and inspire them.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Provides school librarians with specific practices and suggestions they can put to use immediately to revitalize teen reading.
  2. Aligns the librarian with the students and teachers by demonstrating the ability to move beyond the school to access valuable resources.
  3. Supports and strengthens advocacy for the library and librarian by putting the library front and center in programming that will not only be notable, but also popular.
