Authors in Schools

Work with River Bend Bookshop for your School Visits!

Reach us at Events@RiverBendBookshop.com 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 and book orders 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, or reach out to Authors directly to book a visit.
