Schedule A Visit


An author or illustrator visit is a great way to inspire young minds. The words will jump off the page and illustrations come to life when children are able to interact with the creator of their favorite books. Arbordale authors and illustrators tailor their presentations to the age and reading level of the group.

Authors are located throughout the United States; if you would like to request an author visit please email Heather Williams for more information.
