I am happy to visit your school, library, bookstore or conference venue and share my passion for writing and children’s books.
Interactive general presentations use power-point for part of the session and include plenty of time for Q & A.
Small Group Discussions on Bullying and Cyberbullying:
Targeted to grades 4-6 or 6-8, generally for students who have read my Tank Talbott books and/or The Truth About Truman School. We talk about what is/isn’t bullying, causes of bullying, and role-play ways of dealing with bullying.
Workshops can be tailored to any age/grade. Smaller groups (less than 30 students) work best. Choose from the following:
I have handouts to go with most of the workshops – I will send them to you a week before my visit and ask that you make copies for all your students.
I can also talk to your group via Skype. I ask that your students read at least one of my books first and come prepared with questions. (short Q&A session are free)
I do up to four presentations per day. These sessions can include any combination of general presentations, small group discussions and/or writing workshops. If you’d like to share my expenses with another school for one day, I am happy to do two sessions at one school and two sessions at another.
Please allow at least 15 minutes between sessions, time for lunch, and, if necessary, time to get to a second school.
I am happy to sign books during my visit. If you would like to have a book sale to help offset my honorarium, my publishers offer substantial discounts. There is more information on this in my author packet.

Note: Unfortunately, I get a lot of junk email and sometimes real email doesn't make it to my inbox. If I don't respond within a week, please try again. I do respond to all requests for information about school visits, so if you don't get a response I probably didn't get your message.
