Looking for an author visit this year? Look no further! The Author Village has you covered.

The Author Village


Many of our authors are now doing full day virtual visits during the 2020-21 school year. Full day visits are up to three (3) presentations in one school day, two short videos (a pre-visit "hype" video and a post-visit "thank you" video), and personalized and signed books or book plates for those students who order books (if books are ordered). Full day virtual visits range in price from $900.00 to $1800.00




Some of our authors are doing single 45-50 minute sessions. Those range in price from $400.00 to $750.00

On another note -- and allow me to put on a different hat for a moment -- this summer, we added eight educators to our group including Donalyn Miller, Cornelius Minor, and Pernille Ripp. We now offer professional development for educator programs to schools and districts. If you know of any ListServs or school or district administrators who may be interested in this type of programming, please let them know we exist.
