SBF at Schools

Since its inception in 2010, SBF@Schools has brought best-selling authors into local public and private middle/high school and university classrooms to give Savannah’s students a chance to interact with nationally-recognized and prize-winning authors. The SBF@Schools program brings both fiction and non-fiction authors to the schools to discuss creative writing, history, science and current events. Authors share their early educational experiences, influences and successes in their writing lives.

This year, we had a record 26 authors participate in SBF@Schools. This included 16 public schools, 6 private schools, 3 universities and the Deep Center. Please click here to see a student interview with SBF author Ben Coes at New Hampstead High School on their internal TV station.

What a gift to the students of Savannah! We thank the generous authors for the wonderful gift of their time and knowledge that they give to our students and their teachers.

If your school is interested in booking one of these meaningful learning sessions, please contact Kim Bockius-Suwyn at kim@savannahbookfestival.org.
