What kind of literacy program can truly engage and excite young readers? AIBF’s Authors in Schools program not only aims to put a book in the hand of every student in Nassau County, Florida, but also place the book’s author right in front of them in their own classroom or school auditorium.
Authors selected for the program include New York Times best-selling authors and award-winning authors of note. Each year, authors present to more than 13,000 students at Nassau County public schools, five volunteer pre-kindergarten programs and private schools.
Through event ticket sales and the generosity of sponsors, donors, and members, AIBF has purchased books for each of these students! 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.
