The 2019 AIBF Authors in Schools Literacy Program Friday, February 15, 27 is AIBF Authors in Schools Day. 

The selected authors include New York Times Bestselling authors and award-wining authors of note.  A total of 27 different authors will present to more than 12,000 students at 16 Nassau County public schools, five Volunteer pre-kindergarten programs and one private school. 

Through event ticket sales and the generosity of sponsors, donors, members, AIBF has purchased 12,300 books for students. AIBF is grateful to school representatives for coordinating their participation, and to the 17 authors, and the donors and volunteers who make it possible to bring a stimulating, personal educational experience to every student in our home, Nassau County, Florida.
