Author and Illustrator Visit Support

We love witnessing authors and illustrators connect directly with students. Nothing is more joyful than a child realizing the transformative power of literature. We’re here to help make those connections.

  • Connections: We coordinate in-person and virtual visits with local, regional and national authors while partnering with publishers.
  • Fundraising: We offer 20% of pre-tax sales in the form of a gift card to the partnering organziation.
  • Easy Ordering: We create a dedicated author web page to make ordering books easy for families and schools. For virtual visits, we can organize signed bookplates.
  • Easy Processing: We manage orders through an easy-to-use spreadsheet (digital + physical) for your staff or parent teacher organization
  • Expertise: We offer advice on fundraising for author speaking fees, pre-visit activities, author accommodations and dinning.
  • Delivery: We offer delivery within 20 miles of the shop at a very economical fee (deducted from fundraising), shipping at cost, or pickup during business hours.
  • Additional Services: We can provide logistical services including author/illustraor pickup, transportation and drop-offs. We also offer additional processing services to organize orders by school, teacher and student. Fees for additional services apply.
