Library Presentations:

1. Author Presentation – I will talk about my journey to publication, highlighting the 14 years it took for AHIMSA to be published. Readers will learn tips for dealing with writer’s block and craft a story with me from the Big Bad Wolf’s point of view. They will also learn the importance of using fact-based sources for research rather than just relying on Google, through a true or false game. The presentation will conclude with a Q&A. I also request libraries to allow a bookseller to sell my books after the presentation for a signing. ($100, 4th grade and up)

2. Writing Workshop – Learn how to apply screenwriting tips to your fiction writing. Writers will learn how to do a character sketch, write a character journal, and tell a fractured fairytale, thinking about their story from the antagonist’s point of view. If there is time, I am happy to do a Q&A after. I also request that libraries allow a bookseller to sell copies of my books after for a signing. ($100, 4th grade and up)

I also offer several different Skype visits for schools:

1. 20 minute Skype Q & A session – free for classrooms that have read Ahimsa. If you’re interested, I can show students some of the people, places and things that inspired parts of Ahimsa before the Q&A.

2. 40 minute Skype presentation plus Q & A$60 and I ask that you purchase a copy of AHIMSA for your school library, and offer it for purchase to your students. You can purchase the books directly from Lee & Low Books at a great discount for event orders. I will be happy to personalize Ahimsa bookplates and send them to you free of charge so students can have signed books.
