Authors in Schools

Bringing authors to school - virtually and in person - at no cost!

Midtown Reader is especially proud to work with publishers & media specialists to coordinate author visits to local schools!

Since we opened in 2016 we've brought acclaimed childrens authors & illustrators to schools like Kate Sullivan Elementary, Gilchrist Elementary, Roberts Elementary, Maclay School, Holy Comforter Episcopal, FSUS, DeSoto Trail Elementary, Cobb Elementary, SAS and others! 

We are a full service event provider! Midtown Reader creates pre-order forms and handles distribution of books, accounting, author transportation, & supplies for school events. And students get a 20% discount!

Our goal is to put a book in the hands of every child in Leon County. We are working with the superintendent’s office & independent donors in an attempt to fund book donations for students in Title 1 schools.

If your school wants to discuss hosting an author, please email our events coordinator Caylee at Introduce us to your school, and let us know who to contact when we have an author scheduled so that we can make an event happen at your school!

Some Authors we've hosted in the past include Amy Timberlake, Victoria Kann, Philip Stead, Kate DiCamillo, Brad Meltzer, and more!
