Author Visits!

Interested in an Author Visit?

An author visit is an incredible opportunity to connect young readers with the writer behind the book. Whether in person or virtual, I'd love to share my experience as an author with your students, where I hope to inspire, educate and entertain a wide range of future writers and artists. Contact Zen at authorakneer@gmail.com for author visit inquiries, including wholesale book prices! 

The Positive Impact of Author Visits for Students

Bringing in authors to meet students humanizes them, it tells the students that they can aspire to be creative and successful and put something great into the world. Author visits help foster a life-long love for reading. They bring books to life on a whole new level, and they help students develop a greater appreciation for literature and the written word.
 

• An author visit gets kids reading, writing, and understanding the creative process.

 

• Meeting authors makes the reading, writing process, the literature, and the authors        themselves real and accessible to the students.

• Knowing the inside story of a book’s creation helps students learn to recognize                choices made by the author.

• Author visits help students develop the ability to make predictions, inferences, and

   associations.

• Author visits inspire kids to do more of their own writing.

• Kids discover that authors take risks, persevere, and try again.

 

• The positive effects of an author visit last beyond the day of the visit.
