We have personally vetted our authors and know the content and quality of their programs. The authors we represent successfully connect with students through their writing AND presentations.
Many of our authors have received excellent reviews from publications such as School Library Journal, Publishers Weekly, and Booklist. Many have been honored with state awards and several have won the Caldecott Honor, Newbery Medal, and other awards given by the American Library Association.
At booked, we begin by learning about your organization’s goals, expectations, curriculum and audience. We then take all this information into consideration before recommending an author program that meets all your criteria. Because the authors in our portfolio do not pay us a fee, we are able to be unbiased in our recommendations to you. We have chosen to partner with our authors because we believe in their programs and the impact they have on their audiences. We emphasize quality programming and professional planning.
We have extensive experience in coordinating author events at schools and put that experience to work in order to provide you with a seamless author visit experience. We are able to assist in the following:
We can coordinate the book sales in one easy process making it simple for you! We offer a customized order form for every author visit. This form is tailored to the most appropriate and available available books for your audience. Working closely with you, we will create the custom book order form, guide you through the ordering process within your organization, and fulfill your order requirements in a timely and efficient manner. We can coordinate book sales for any author visit – whether you booked the author through us or separately.
Whether you choose to use the book sales as a fundraiser for your organization or pass the savings along to your audience, we always offer this discount to our customers.
In order to remain unbiased in our recommendations, booked charges a nominal set up fee for the coordination of each author visit and ask that we are the sole vendor for the book sales component. We do not charge a fee if you are using booked for book sales only. We pride ourselves in doing what we love for a small fee. And you still receive 20% of your organization’s total book sales back!
