For Educators

If you are an educator, we have some unique opportunities and services that can enhance your classroom and enrich your students.


We enjoy working with educators and offer diverse services to help share the love of reading with your students. Some of these include:

-20% discount on most titles being purchased by your school or institution. (Books must be purchased directly by the organization to qualify, and must be paid for by the institution's credit card or checking account.)

-Free shipping for orders over $75.

-Recommendations for books by age range and/or reading levels.

-Shopping nights for teachers by parents/students, with a percentage of the proceeds donated to the school. (Contact Daniel at

Please email Conrad in Special Orders at  if your school is interested in any of these other services.

Author Visits

We often have authors who are offered to us and we would love to bring these authors to your school. In the past, we've collaborated with schools to host Brittany Cavallaro,Trenton Lee Stewart, Miranda Paul, William Joyce, Katherine Applegate, Doreen Cronin, and Besty Lewin - the list could truly go on. If your school is interested in working with authors available to Boswell, please email Todd, our School Event Coordinator at for a list of potential touring authors. Please keep in mind that we try to match the best author with the best school.
