Field Family Teen Author Series
The Field Family Teen Author Series promotes a lifetime love of reading by creating a personal connection between author and student. In addition, students get to know their local Free Library branch, an essential public resource for academic enrichment, recreational reading materials, cultural opportunities, and internet access.
The Free Library of Philadelphia’s Field Family Teen Author Series is one of the best in the country.
Philly’s Free Library has created a teen program that would make Oprah envious.
How it Works
The Teen Author Series operates in partnership with Philadelphia high schools and middle schools—public, charter, magnet, and diocesan—and is open to classes in grades 7–12. Participation is by invitation only.
- There is no cost to schools or students!
- Each student receives a FREE copy of the visiting author’s book to keep!
- The Teen Author Series Outreach Coordinator will visit your classroom to talk about the author’s book and deliver copies for each participating student to read in advance.
- Students meet the author at their local Free Library branch for a one-hour presentation, Q&A, and book signing.
Teachers and school administrators can contact the Teen Author Series Outreach Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 215-686-5372 for information about current opportunities to participate.
