Oh! I really do love to meet with kids and talk about writing and books.

Would you like to have me visit your school? I visit many schools each year, and I offer multi-day residencies, assembly presentations, and smaller writing workshops. There's plenty of information here to get you started planning a visit, but don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you might have.

Please Note: I have two requirements for school visits: (1) Students read (or have read to them) at least one of my books before I visit the school. (2) Students take home a book order form so that they have the opportunity to order a personally autographed book. Students are not required to buy my books, but I do ask that the school sends home an order form with each student.



In addition to the writing workshops, assemblies, and residencies listed below, I can customize presentations to meet the particular needs of your school. I offer up to four presentations per day and speak to students in grades pre-K through 12.

I charge a per-day fee (which includes up to four presentations), and I'm happy to share a single day between two schools that are close to each other. If you would like me to keynote at your conference, please contact me directly for my keynote fee.
