    Author Visits

    Our school has had some wonderful people. We generally work through the author's publisher, and on some occasions, we have worked with a local children's book store. It will also depend upon what your budget is. Newer author/illustrators are generally cheaper than established ones, and some of the established ones no longer do author/illustrator visits. We have had wonderful experiences with Jerry Pinkney, Peter Catalanotto, Wendell Minor, Jim Arnosky, and Chris Soenpiet recently. I would zero in on some people you feel you are interested in, and contact the publishers first. Many of these people are booked a year in advance.
