New for the 2021-22 school year!

  • Online book sales available for author visits
  • A full spectrum of virtual and in person author visit experiences

The past 18 months have taught us to be flexible and address evolving school environments. Booked can now provide online book sales to support your virtual or in person author visit experience. We continue to ensure high quality author visits in any format. We also offer smaller, author-led booked chat sessions for groups interested in creating a unique and personalized experience for students.

booked was created to help schools plot their literary adventures!

We work directly with you to inspire, design and facilitate the best possible author visit for your students. Working with a portfolio of hand selected authors, we match your school’s needs and goals to our authors’ talents and skills.

At booked, we take pride in matching clients with the best authors available. 

We have vetted all the authors we represent and can attest to their strengths in presenting to students. We do not charge our authors a fee. We do this to remain unbiased and honest in recommending the right author match for your age group of students. We objectively work with each school to recommend the best option for their needs.

booked can help your school ensure a successful author-student experience.

In addition to planning author visits from idea to tour, we also coordinate the book sales component of the author visit. If your school has an author scheduled, we can coordinate your book sales in an easy “one-stop shopping” experience.

Whether planning a one-day author visit, seeking a week-long artist residency or coordinating the book sales component of a visit, booked can help your school achieve a successful author-student experience.
