The Care and Feeding of Authors: Planning a Successful Author Visit

Looking to book an author at your library? Put your library’s best professional foot forward and avoid common pitfalls. Join Indiana author Kelsey Timmerman and Indiana’s Letters About Literature Coordinator, Suzanne Walker for this discussion about best practices when booking an author. From making sure their dietary needs are met to paying them efficiently, there’s more to booking an author than just deciding on a date. Hosted by Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Award Program Coordinator, Caity Withers. Be sure to bring all of your questions regarding booking authors.

(No need to travel to the Indiana State Library, you can attend from the comfort of your own library!)

This webinar is eligible for 1 LEU which you will receive via download from your presenter at the end of the webinar.
