Children's Authors Series

The Children’s Author Series, which is sponsored by The Fort Worth Public Library Foundation through generous private funding, provides school children with a rare opportunity to meet the authors and illustrators of their favorite books in person. This is an opportunity to inspire young minds to read and write.
