The Children’s Author Series brings professionals who have created books with a high appeal to children together with students, either through student field trips to a branch of the Fort Worth Library or by author visits arranged to local campuses. Most authors have targeted their books for K-8 grade levels. Meeting an author or illustrator who has opened a world beyond their own, expands the creativity that children naturally have.
Presenters of our Children’s Author Series read to and engage students during their workshops, to ignite or foster a love of reading. Writers and artists talk about their favorite techniques, sources for ideas, use of imagination, and about becoming a published writer or artist. All school campuses in the Fort Worth Library patron area are encouraged to participate at no fee to the school. FWPLF actively targets Fort Worth Title I schools without the budget or boosters to fund such a program.
