Author Link is an ambitious new part of Festival Friday’s Authors in Schools program. With corporate support and vigorous fundraising Author Link started in 2013 with great success. Many Nassau County public school students and libraries received a copy of the book written by the author who visited their class. Of the fifteen visiting authors over 400 books were purchased.
It is the Festival’s desire to make this one of the most aggressive book distribution programs in Florida. The ultimate goal is to give every student who meets the author at Authors in Schools a gift of a book.
The success of this new program is due to the generosity of the Nassau County School Board, Rock Tenn, Advanced Disposal and Amelia Underwriters.
2014 will be another great year for Author Link as the Festival has already begun to raise money to buy the authors’ books. Companies, book clubs, civic organizations and individuals who want to contribute may make a donation here.
