If you are a lover of pop culture or of love stories then Irving Public Library has got an author panel for you!
Thank you for your interest in NTTBF! We will be accepting pitches for authors interested in participating at NTTBF18 from September 1-15, 2017. At this time, we will only be considering pitches directly from publicists for young adult and middle grade titles. We will not be accepting self-submitted author applications for the 2018 festival. Please send submissions to Dr. Rose Brock at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Then we've got the training for you!
When: Wednesday, June 14 from 1 to 4 p.m.
Where: South Irving Library, 601 Schulze Dr.
What: The NTTBF steering committee and authors well versed in school/library visits will share their insights on how to start your own author visits in your school or public library, what makes for a good author visit, and steps to take to ensure an author visit is a success. Sign up with Region 10 or 11 today!
The focus of this symposium is to how to successfully plan and host author visits at schools and public libraries. Attendees will learn about best practices from members of NTTBF’s steering committee, as well as other area librarians. Authors Kendare Blake, Ally Carter, Roshani Chokshi, Jeramey Kraatz, Alex London, and Julie Murphy will share their impressions on successful school and library visits and offer an opportunity for Q and A about author appearances. Attendees completing this training will also learn more about NTTBF18 school outreach opportunities, and they will receive a tote bag with a book from one of the featured authors and author visit related swag (while supplies last). Author signing and additional book sales directly following discussion.
