An author visit brings books to life.
As an author and an illustrator I can bring a unique perspective to a school event. I have an understanding of both the written word and the visual component of books for young readers. My programs can be geared for elementary, high school or adult sessions. Students can:
• learn how an illustrator works
• learn how a picture book is made from idea to printed piece
• make their own book
• or enjoy story telling either from printed books or in a narrative format.
All my books have curriculum tie-in guides at the publisher’s web site, so teachers can integrate the visits with their lesson plans.
