Celebrating April Authors


We love celebrating authors who have touched our hearts and minds with their words. One way to do this is to observe their birthdays. It’s a perfect way to introduce or revisit their contributions to our literacy lives.

This list will remind you of authors you already love and will hopefully introduce you to a few you need to know. You’ll find titles to interest all ages. Check them out from your local library or click the Amazon links.
