Classroom (in Delaware) and Virtual (anywhere) Visits
For Allies for Justice, I would be delighted to share the history of Delaware’s role in the Brown v. Bd of Education case, discuss the writing process, answer questions, etc.
For Blue’s River, my illustrator and good friend, Marsha Holler, can sometimes join me on visits to libraries and classrooms. We can provide tips on the creative writing (and illustrating) process, share interesting facts about Delaware history and watersheds, and even conduct a lesson on how to draw a Great Blue Heron.
Presentations can be tailored around the individual teacher or librarian’s needs. Please reach out to me by using the information on the Contact page.
$100 for a virtual visit, $200 for one in-person classroom visit, $500 for a full day of classroom visits.
Ordering books: If you wish to order five or more copies of any single title, please contact me through my “Contact” page as I can offer copies at a much reduced price – along with free shipping. The only catch is that delivery can take up to two weeks, depending upon the quantity ordered.
