Why Book Authors

An author brings more to the table than just a good book! These folks are often leaders in their field, industry, or topic of interest. Booking an author as a speaker allows them to give your audience education and insight to the topics of their book or about their field. The authors listed bring all kinds of topics to the table from children's literature and fiction novels to political and religious experts. No matter the subject of interest, you're sure to find an author to match your needs to give a great speech and possibly a book signing.
