And so another school year has begun, but boy was it a busy summer getting ready! This year Wondermore is planning fourteen author & illustrator visits to underserved Boston Public Schools, six special author events for children and adults alike, our annual "What's New in Children's Books" conference and much, much more.
Joined this summer by our new Director of Development, Lynn Alberding, Wondermore is poised to make a powerful impact on the communities we serve. Wondermore's Authors-in-Schools program is at the core of our mission to cultivate children's curiosity, creativity and academic achievement by bringing authors and illustrators into K-8 Boston Public Schools where 75% or more of the students live in poverty. These schools are often under-resourced and Wondermore provides these author visits, writing workshops, and the books that go along with them at no cost to the school or students.
