Authors to Schools Program

There is an understanding between the author and child that they are sharing a special moment in time and there is nothing as gratifying as seeing the joy on kids' faces as they eagerly listen to an author read from his or her book.

Through our outreach program, Authors to Schools, we bring touring authors and illustrators into schools all over Connecticut spanning grades pre-K through high school. We are fortunate to work with many fabulous authors — Marc Brown, R.L. Stine, Kate DiCamillo, Jane O’Connor, Lincoln Peirce, Chris Grabenstein, Patricia MacLachlan…to name just a few!

Participation in the program is easy. Contact Karen Schumann, our Children's and Young Adult Events Coordinator, and she will begin finding a good match for your  School's wants and needs.

In addition to the Authors to Schools program, we would love to hear from you to discuss some of the many ways RJ Julia Booksellers can work directly with your school. Book fairs, teacher programs, summer reading fundraisers, and our ever-popular Educators’ Night are just some of the programs we have available. As your local, independent bookstore, we are flexible and responsive with the goal of meeting each school’s specific needs.

To contact Karen, please email or call (203) 245-3959.
