Providing Tri-Cities students an authentic writing conference where students can learn from the authors of the books they are reading.
April 21st authors from all over the country will come to the Tri-Cities to spend quality time with local middle school and high school students at the Cavalcade of Authors. An event that started in 2009 by a middle school librarian, it’s purpose is to provide Tri-City’s middle and high school students access to some of the best young adult authors to promote reading and writing within our community.
Cavalcade of Authors includes a kickoff event at Barnes and Noble and ends with a workshop style conference for students. By providing an authentic writing conference experience where students interact and learn from the ultimate mentors – the authors of the books they are reading- Cavalcade’s goal is to promote literacy through a memorable experience. Authors also visit local schools and businesses throughout their visit, stay for autographing sessions to promote their love of reading and writing.
Windermere Real Estate cares about providing positive learning experiences for our local youth and has been a proud sponsor of Cavalcade of Authors for the last four years.
