Author visits are AWESOME.
Thanks to a partnership with the totally cool Boswell Books (on Downer Ave.), libraries all over Milwaukee County get to host authors. Live and in person, these authors of bestselling or brand new books come to you to speak about their craft, their books, and themselves. They answer questions. They sign books. They let you hang out in a room with them for like an hour and it is very awesome.
Check out Boswell Book Company’s website for details on non-YA author visits (if you’re into that kind of thing). Check out this page for details on YA author visits (because I KNOW you are into that kind of thing), here at Shorewood and at other nearby libraries. (There are tons more – including authors who write for adults and kids in case those interest you, too – listed on Boswell’s website!)
