Authors Hour ™ is a Scribes & Vibes ™ author event. We celebrate poets, writers, and illustrators via author talks, interviews, and book signings.
Scribes & Vibes ™ promotes poetry and literature through the careful curation of community arts programs and book selections. To help librarians craft accessible and inclusive programs, we secure talent, identify funding resources, and provide library assessment.
To make a positive impact on the communities we serve, we establish partnerships with libraries and donate 50% of net profits to Friends of the Library groups and Library Foundations.
