Visiting Authors, Illustrators & Guests
Academy of the Sacred Heart believes that every student – from the youngest of ages to the graduating senior – should read, hear and be exposed to the top contemporary writers and speakers of our day. From New York Times best-sellers to local works of interest, Sacred Heart’s Visiting Author + Speaker Series continues to bring award-winning literature and philanthropists to campus. Past speakers include COO of Facebook Sheryl Sandberg, activist and philanthropist Jane Goodall, international best-sellers Rick Riordan and Jeff Kinney, Fancy Nancy illustrator Robin Preiss Glasser, Newbery medalist Matt de la Peña and more. Whether our guest visits are integrated into curriculum or they are open to the public, our vision is to enhance the literary and global awareness of our community.
