AUTHOR TALKS

 

Have you considered inviting an author to speak to your students?

One of the highlights of being an author is to meet the young adults reading our books. What a blessing that is! Teachers and students have expressed their appreciation for the opportunity to hear a talk by the author and then discuss the stories and characters that they’ve all come to know.

Author visits are extremely valuable to the author and the students, and you can read more about this amazing opportunity, including the personal experiences and advice from some of today's amazing Catholic fiction authors—including five Catholic Teen Books members—in the summer 2019 edition of Today’s Catholic Teacher.

The article, “Bring an Author to School,” highlights the benefits of inviting authors to schools to speak directly to the students. Whether via in-person visits or virtual, teachers can add a valuable dimension to their curriculum. Check out the article for more information!

 

See below for a full list of Catholic Teen Book authors who are available for in-person and/or virtual visits!

 

Hey, Catholic school and parish faith-formation teachers! This one is for you!

 

 

"It is a very special gift for students to engage with the author of the books they read and love!
