Education & Outreach

We provide educational experiences to thousands of students each year through our programs and work with hundreds of schools and non-profit organizations to share the resource of acclaimed authors visiting our community. We invite you to get involved with us!

Each of our Words & Picture authors visits an area school while six additional schools actively participate through videoconferencing technology–what an amazing opportunity!
