    presenter needs and what a school needs in a

    find the right author for your event.

Saving Ideas
  • Is there another school in your district which
    also wants to schedule the author the same week?
  • Sometimes an author will discount their fee when
    they are booked for more than one school in the
    same week in the same area.
  • Authors and More can help with booking authors
    for more than one day from surrounding districts
    thus saving costs for everyone.

    author/storyteller for an evening performance
  • Book Clubs
  • Ladies or Men's groups
