SCHOOL EVENTS + CLASSROOM AUTHOR VISIT

I would love to visit your school, teacher's conference, panel, bookstore, kitchen table, and etc! Please contact me to come up with a plan.
 

WHAT A VISIT MIGHT LOOK LIKE

  • During a typical school visit around The 50 States and 50 Cities, students and I enjoy lively conversations about the different types of maps, how to make editorial choices about what to include in a map, and create a map of an invented state, complete with state foods, animals, and mottos.
  • During a typical school visit with Book of Bones, students and I discuss animal features, decision making in writing, and create a skeleton of an invented animal, complete with labels describing the animals habitat, diet, and special abilities.
  • I've had successful skype visits, too!

HOW TO HOST AN AUTHOR VISIT

ORDERING BOOKS FOR AN AUTHOR VISIT

  • Start the process about six weeks before your event.
  • Download and personalize this order form.
  • via your local bookseller. Indiebound can help! Some stores, like Barnes and Noble, offer bulk discounts (when 50 copies of the same title are ordered) and/or educator discounts.
    Your local bookstore will need the following:
        Event Date
        Delivery & Location Address
        ISBN(s) for the book(s)
        Quantity you need per ISBN
  • via Quarto (1 800 458 0454): sometimes the publisher has deals on their website. Check for discount codes, which may give you 25% off.
