Save the Date for 2025

The next Author-Go-Round is scheduled for Winter 2025. More details will be posted here as they are finalized.

SBCEO’s Author-Go-Round inspires students to consider the journeys of writing, drawing, and publishing as they spend quality time with published authors and illustrators. In this intimate "Q&A" type of event, students learn about the values of persistence, resilience, and creative expression firsthand.

We invite students in grades 5-8 to engage with published authors and illustrators as they learn, wonder, and reflect on the publishing process in this unique literary event.
