- a list of Lee & Low authors and illustrators who do school and library visits
Panelists Stephanie Bange, Lee & Low’s author visits coordinator; Dr. Christina Dorr, media specialist, Weaver Middle School, Hilliard, Ohio; and Traci Sorell, co-author of Indian No More (Lee & Low Books, 2019), will discuss how to select and schedule an author, find funding for the visit, prepare your attendees for the day, and execute a smooth visit.
