Sharing the joy of reading and writing with children is one of the best parts of being an author. And school visits give me the opportunity to not only share my own stories with children, but to hear their stories, also.
When I visit a school, I like to personalize the visit to meet the needs/desires of the librarians and teachers.
My presentations are flexible and I work with each school to add to my basic presentation which involves a reading OR dramatic presentation of Being Frank (class participation is requested from older students and sometimes teachers), I teach them the song I wrote for Being Frank Song, "More Sugar, Less Pepper", and Q&A.
For all local public schools in Cabarrus County and Rowan County (NC), fees are waived for in-person visits. For schools outside of these districts, please email me for more information: .
Virtual visits (via skype) are also available. Please email me for more details.
Visits (including virtual ones) include bookmarks for all students.
I also bring up to 350 activity sheets with me to be divided up according to the teacher’s needs/wishes.
If the visits are more than 3 hours away from Concord, lodging and other travel expenses (airline) may also apply.
