Extreme Author Visits: Going EXTRA for a Special Guest
We all know that illustrator and author visits inspire students in the moment. How can you take it to the next level so they leave a lasting impact on everyone from your youngest kindergartner to your principal, parents, and even your most reluctant reader? In this webinar, Stacey Rattner, the "leaping librarian," will share all her tips on how to host an extreme visit in your school. Come away from this webinar inspired with easy-to-replicate models for schoolwide engagement, from mural creation to book birthday parties and more. The perfect time to begin setting the stage for next school year’s visits is not September… it’s now!

Gain ideas on how to:
  • Foster initial connections in the publishing world
  • Collaborate with teachers on advance preparation projects
