The DoSeum is San Antonio's only museum just for children where kids learn by doing, creating and tinkering, instead of just looking and listening.
The Author Series will provide an opportunity for whole family to engage and will expose children to the Author’s creative process and craft; cultivating imagination and creativity to become authors.
Show your child the true magic of reading with The DoSeum's Author Series. Over the course of the year, we will feature four children's authors whose literature excites, inspires, and educates. At The DoSeum, they’ll read their stories aloud, share their creative process, sign books, and meet and mingle with families afterwards. These engaging visits aren’t just fun—they help foster a deeper appreciation and connection to the books your child is reading. This immersive experience might even inspire you and your family to write your own stories! Are you or your child budding authors? Come find out with us!

“I really enjoyed the opportunity to collaborate with The DoSeum staff to develop a program around the author's visit. The children and families were outstanding, engaged, and delightful. Most author visits to schools and libraries are engaging, but none have felt as supported as my visit to The DoSeum...The staff made me feel honored to be invited. I'm thrilled that The DoSeum is committed to making learning fun, and using literacy events as a tool to inspire children.”

“The staff is awesome, the venue is truly great, and the kids are the best. The way the interaction between the author and the students is set up by the staff at The DoSeum is first-rate. They truly go all out!... The activities are all aimed towards harnessing a child's creativity. The atmosphere of the place is a very positive, education-based one. It is set up in such a way that a child's imagination is triggered the minute they walk in.”

“Kids come to the DoSeum ready to have fun & explore, so it’s a joy to introduce your book in this environment. Everyone is ready to dig deeper, make connections, and celebrate stories in unique ways. The DoSeum team is friendly and full of ideas on how to make the program enjoyable for everyone.”
