Planning Author Events at Public Libraries

Date & Time:

Thursday, August 11, 2022 at 12-1 p.m. ET


This session will tell you everything you wanted to know about author visits but were too afraid to ask. Author visits have such an incredible and long lasting effect on kids and adults, but if you are a librarian in a smaller library system who is figuring it out all alone, or a book publicist unfamiliar with the inner workings of a library, it can be intimidating.


Learn how independent publishers and small- and medium-sized public libraries can work together to plan successful author events. This session will outline best practices, from planning and promoting the event to navigating author fees, book sales, and day-of logistics. Linda Ludke, Collection Management Librarian at London Public Library, will moderate a conversation between Bronte Germain of Orca Book Publishing and Sarah MacNeal of Bracebridge Library. 

Fee: Complimentary
