A full day school visit entails the guest author or illustrator offering up to four exciting and educational presentations to your students, typically 30-40 minutes each. Additionally the author or illustrator will spend time with staff/teachers during lunch (provided by staff or parents), as well as personally signing books pre-purchased by your students.
Typically if your school was to host an author or illustrator for a day, your school would be responsible for both the honorarium as well as expenses incurred (hotel and mileage). For the Claire’s Day school visit program, Claire’s Day Inc. typically pays for author/illustrator expenses, and hotel partners provide complimentary guest rooms in support of our mission.
Additionally, thanks to the support of our new sponsor, UPS, each school participating in the Claire’s Day school visit program will receive a complimentary “bundle of books” written and or illustrated by our participating authors and illustrators.
