Take lots of pictures during Paulette’s visit.
Have books available for Paulette to sign! Children love to have a book
signed by a “Real Live Author” that they have actually met.
A signed book is a great memento.
Many bookstores provide an education discount. Check your local
bookstore. Or you can order directly from the publishers with an
education discount. It can be a great way for schools and libraries to
generate extra money.

Kent Place School, New Jersey
“Paulette Bogan’s author visit was delightful! One of the highlights of the visit was when Paulette talked about how she illustrates books. She took the children’s requests and drew many pictures for them, which she then signed and gave out to the classroom teachers.”
Kathleen Meulen – Head Librarian
Marymount School, New York City
“Almost a year after our Book Fair, a grandparent of a student explained to me that “Goodnight Lulu” is still her granddaughter’s first choice for a bedtime read.”
Eden Stewart-Eisman, Head Librarian
St. Luke’s School, NYC
“The children love to interact with Paulette and are eager to engage in her presentations. One of the most special aspects of Paulette’s presentation is her ability to communicate to children that they can pursue their hobbies, loves, and interests, as careers.”
