Visiting Authors

Grey Nun Academy offers the unique educational experience of a Visiting Authors program to benefit students and families of our school community. These events, which feature well-known authors and illustrators of books published in multiple genres for a variety of ages, are an extension of classroom learning as they encourage children to understand and appreciate the creative process.

Meeting authors and illustrators and hearing their personal stories helps students to cultivate a love of reading and writing, and makes the authors and artists themselves accessible and real to everyone.

While much of our program is exclusively for the educational benefit of our students, Grey Nun Academy also co-hosts New York Times best selling author events in our McKenna Center auditorium that are open to the public through a partnership with Newtown Bookshop.

Grey Nun Academy’s inspiring and informative Visiting Author program benefits our students, faculty, and our local Bucks County and nearby NJ communities. New authors are added periodically during the school year, so we invite you to check back to this page to see when the next event will be held.
