Virtual Author Visits Spark Joy, Excitement for Reading
Meeting an author or illustrator never fails to excite students and teachers. And Scholastic Book Fairs virtual visits give even more children an opportunity to "meet" vicariously with authors or illustrators. The goal of a virtual visit is simple: to encourage kids to read, thereby inspiring the next generation of writers and illustrators.
With the increased demand and need for programs that can be accessed at school and at home, we now have even more visits for you to choose from. We’ve added hundreds of new 30-minute sessions to our fall catalog.
Hosting a virtual visit is easy. Here’s how it works:
And just like our book fairs, our virtual visits feature authors and illustrators from the best publishers from around the world. Here are just some of the virtual visits you can look forward to: Alan Gratz, Raina Telgemeier, Lauren Tarshis, Ben Clanton, Katherine Applegate, Sharon Draper, Ame Dyckman, Max Brallier, Jennifer A. Nielsen, Tom Angleberger, Luke Flowers, Francisco X. Stork, Juana Martinez-Neal, Christina Soontornvat … and dozens more!
We have an incredible line-up of visits and add more every month. Follow us on social media to hear about just-announced virtual visits you and your students won’t want to miss.
