Author Visits

Interested in having an author or storyteller visit your school? Obido is here to help.

Whether you’ve invited an author through our exclusive partner, Authors Abroad, through the storytelling provider Pana Wakke, or you are planning on bringing in an author on your own, Obido wants to make sure your event runs smoothly and gets your students excited about reading.

What we offer:

  1. Tell us about your event at least 8 weeks in advance and we will import and provide hundreds of copies of the visiting author’s books for free that you can sell during your event. A percentage of sales will be provided to your school as a credit.
  2. We will provide free marketing materials, order forms and display cases that you can use to create eye-catching displays in your reception area or library.
  3. In some locations, we are able to provide an Obido event staff member to help with selling the books during the author visit.

If your school is looking to invite an author or storyteller to your school and don’t know where to start, contact us for options and we can introduce you to an author visit service provider or directly to several authors in the US, UK, Hong Kong and Mainland China.
