FOR TEACHERS ONLY School Visits FAQ
THIS PAGE IS FOR TEACHERS AND MEDIA SPECIALIST TO STAY IN KNOW AB0UT UPCOMING AUTHOR EVENTS AT BRAVE!
Hello Teachers + Media Specialists! + Brave Schools!
We’re so excited you’re here!
Brave + Kind is a thoughtfully curated little neighborhood book (and web) shop that boasts an intentionally diverse and inclusive selection of Kids and YA books. And a few grown up books to help us all do better as human beings.
We value the work you do for your students and the love of reading you work to instill in all kids. And we are excited to bring a diverse group of authors to Atlanta area schools as we partner with to share and grow a love of stories.
WHAT ARE SCHOOL VISITS?
Throughout the Fall and Spring we have opportunties through our partnerships with publishers to bring authors who are visiting atlanta at schools on their book tours. They are eager to get engage with students and We love to partner with them to visit Brave schools and classrooms and to do that we need YOU!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
It’s easy! Let us know your interest by signing up HERE . We usuallly arrange 2-3 schools per visit . If you'd like to have that author visit your school during the dates they’re available, just let us know. We’re always looking to send authors to classrooms that kids are already familiar with and excited to see. But it’s also an opportunity to discover new authors so we’ve added them below for all to see.
And come back here often to check to see which authors we have on our calendar to visit schools
WHAT DOES IT COST?
For most, nothing at all except a commitment to buy some books to support the authors. Sending authors anywhere costs the publishers money and they can only keep sending authors with the support of readers, schools and libraries. Each author is different in the minimum requirement and we also partner with nonprofits to help minimize the cost in some instances, but we also hope that kids can enjoy these books in their libraries in school and at home for years to come.
HOW DOES A SCHOOL VISIT WORK?
Once you’ve been selected to host an author we’ll coordinate details directly with you on where, what time and how to distribute the books. We will provide a link to share with your school community to pre order the book from the website so the books will be in hand the day of the event. The authors will come with a Brave + Kind bookseller, give a presentation to the kids and then do a book signing (most of the time, sometimes they sign the books before hand).
