Trinity Prep Author Festival 2021!

Trinity Preparatory School's sixth annual Author Festival is on Friday, Feb. 5, 2021, and this year it is VIRTUAL! The event is FREE and open to the public. We have 44 YA, Middle Grade, and Picture Book authors scheduled to attend, including seven NY Times bestsellers. Event planners, Reba Gordon, Director of the Rich Library, and English 8 & YA Lit Teacher, Georgia Parker, have live Keynote speakers and multiple pre-recorded author panels planned for even greater flexibility for readers. Watch this page for more updates to experience all we have to offer.

To support the continuation of the Author Fest and the authors who have volunteered their time to be here, we encourage all attendees to purchase books from our independent bookseller, Kizzy's Books & More. See the full catalog!

Make sure to register in order to have access to the sessions. There is also an opportunity to interact with your favorite author with crowd sourced questions during the LIVE sessions! 

For more information, email
