I would love to come visit your schools and libraries to work with your students! Please contact me with any questions that you have and to arrange a visit.
During a presentation I typically show artwork that I made when I was a kid, I talk about my book, describe and show my working process, including showing dummy books and early drafts. I also have a special animated version of my book that will be shown to the class. I leave a lot of time for questions as this is often a great starting point for rich discussions.
what works best
My presentations are great for elementary aged kids, but I am happy to talk with any grade level, including college students and adults. I adapt the presentation for the groups that I am working with, simplifying the talk for younger grades and going more in depth about my process of making a book with older audiences.
