Author Visits

Duration: 30 - 60 minutes

(The duration depends on the grade ->

the littlest learners can sometimes struggle if a presentation is too long. Most visits are 60 minutes in length.)

 

Author visits are open for grades K-12. During the visit, Alexandra does a book reading for students and a Q&A session. She also reveals the real-life inspirations behind her different books, showing students that their experiences have power and can be inspirations for great stories. Alexandra will share her journey to becoming an author and will give students tips and tricks to becoming professional authors or illustrators. Author visits are catered to the grade(s) of students that Alexandra is visiting.

 

During a visit, Alexandra will hand-deliver signed books that are pre-ordered!  Pre-order forms will be sent to the teacher to send home with students prior to the visit, so that, if families choose, they can order a signed book written by Alexandra.
