Request a School Visit
In 2019-2020, I will be available for school visits on a limited schedule:

  • October 2019, February-April 2020.
  • Any school in the continental United States.
  • $2,000 per day for a 2-day visit (there are no 1-day visits) plus travel, board and lodging*.
  • $1,800 per day for visits of 3 days or longer, plus travel, board and lodging*.
* There is a fixed rate travel cost of $100 if your school is local. In October 2019, local is defined as 250 miles from Boston, MA. In February-April 2020, local is defined as 250 miles from Tamppa, FL.

Time in School

During a six-hour period, I will make up to 4 presentations of between 40 and 60 minutes each, depending on audience age. I will bring a PowerPoint presentation on a USB/Memory Stick to be used in your computer/display system.
  • 1st-2nd graders generally 40 minutes:
  • 3rd-4th graders generally 45 minutes:
  • 5th-6th graders generally 55-60 minutes: and
  • My presentations are not geared to kindergarten, but if necessary, I will give them a much shorter presentation (around 10 minutes.)
I will sign books while in your school, and I am happy to have lunch with teachers, school administrators, and PTA members.

In order to get the most out of the visit, all students attending the presentations should have familiarity with one or more of my books.
