Synopsis

Author visits are a great way to teach children about the writing process and the pleasures of literacy. However, the planning and coordinating necessary for a successful author visit can often seem overwhelming. Drawing on over 20 years of experience, the author has written a charming and accessible guide to author visits. This book is built on James' tried and true techniques for planning an author event that is both fun and enriching. It is packed with quotes from many familiar and award winning authors that offer invaluable insight into what they consider the most successful methods for encouraging interaction between the children and the author. Including many interesting anecdotes as well as easy to use worksheets, Author Day Adventures is as enjoyable to read as it is fun to implement. This book is the ideal guide for any teacher, administrator, librarian or volunteer in charge of planning author visits and is appropriate for any institution concerned with promoting children's literacy.
