Texas Author and Illustrator School Visit Program

·         Simply go to the Gift Store section of this website and click on authors and Illustrators to find more information about their school visits. You can book them with your Gift Credit, Library funds or combination of the two. 

·         Most of the Authors and Illustrators have offered a discount if you book with Library funds. 



Overlooked Books is to small a company to have every title available on our website like the National companies do.  However, we can get virtually every book our competitors can – and we will bind them, give 5% on trade publishers/ individual titles, and 20% on publishers who sell their books in sets. 


Anyway you put your list together - whether it be from a publisher’s website, a competitor’s website or simply a list you and your teachers have put together we can deliver the books and give you your gift credit.

* We will match prices.
