Webinar: Create Engaging School Visits
For many authors and illustrators, the idea of visiting schools to give talks and presentations is overwhelming or even scary. You spend your days alone with your ideas, so how do you translate that into a school visit? How do you engage students and also make the adults who hired you happy? Author Michelle Cusolito will provide practical ideas for planning and running an engaging school or library program that also meets the needs of teachers and librarians. She’ll start by giving a quick overview of Common Core standards to help you see how your work dovetails with the standards. Then she’ll move into practical, real-world examples of successful programs that were designed to suit the style of the individual author. She’ll also offer tips for selling books, setting reasonable fees, and running Skype visits. The webinar will end with a Q&A session.
