A children’s author once said, “There is no substitute for the face-to-face interaction that comes from visiting stores and greeting an audience.”


Author J. Steven Spires agrees. One of the ways he connects with his readers is through book signings. The author enjoys meeting children and families who have come to check out and purchase his latest kid’s book, “Three Little Shrimp.”

Book Signings are Good For All

As a children’s book author, Steve believes that taking children to meet authors at book signings is good for all:

1. It’s good for the children to talk to an author and learn more about story writing.
2. It’s good for parents, grandparents or guardians to listen and understand their children’s view on books.
3. It’s great for authors and no one is more honest than children with respect to likes and dislikes.

With all these advantages, book signings can be very important to all!
