Authors in Schools

River Bend Bookshop is busy working on our lineup for Fall 2022 School Visits!

We are hosting a mix of virtual and in-person events for the 2022-2023 school year.  

We have a new event management team in place, and you can reach us at or 860.430.6608.

As always, our touring Authors do not require an appearance fee. These events are free, and open to schools across Connecticut.  We ask all schools to distribute order forms, and those who are able to consider a purchase for classroom libraries.  Supporting authors and publishers with book sales is our way of compensating them for their time and efforts on tour.


We are also happy to coordinate school visits with some of our favorite local authors.  These presenters are sure to entertain, educate, and inspire!!  Please note, some authors do have appearance fees and/or minimum orders.  Contact us to learn more.
