2024 Authors in Schools Program
What kind of literacy program can truly engage and excite young readers? AIBF’s Authors in Schools (AIS) program has not only provided the opportunity for every student in Nassau County, Florida to receive a book, but also places the book’s author right in front of them in their own classroom or school auditorium.
After several years of successfully executing this award-winning, flagship program, the Amelia Island Book Festival and the Nassau County Public School Board have made the difficult decision to place this program on hold for 2024. A variety of external and internal factors have necessitated our need to replan and re-launch this program for 2025.
In its place for 2024 will be an expanded Young Adult Author focus of the Authors' Expo, with an opportunity for selected authors to interact with students as part of the 2024 Authors' Expo and Readers' Extravaganza program.
AIBF is grateful to school representatives for coordinating their participation, and to the authors, donors and volunteers who make it possible to bring a stimulating, personal educational experience to every student in our community.
