The Visit
Please list up to three possible dates or time periods for the author to visit. If possible, your dates should be no less than two weeks apart to maximize the chances of the author being available. NOTE: It's best to plan six months to a year ahead for most authors. Remember to list dates in order of preference.

Hint: November, March, and April are usually the busiest traveling months for our authors and illustrators. If possible, try to pick dates in other months.
