School Visits

*** Currently booking school visits for the 2018-2019 school year. Attention, Iowans! With The Distance to Home on the Iowa Children’s Choice Award list, I’d love to come out to Iowa for the first time to meet with readers! ***

As a former public librarian working in the children’s and teen departments in suburban Chicago and the Greater Boston area, Jenn has plenty of experience with young readers, from the reluctant to the most voracious. She ran writing workshops, fantasy baseball clubs, summer reading programs, and more. And she’d love to come to your school or public library to talk books, reading, revision, the publishing process, and, okay, at least a little baseball.

Get in touch with Jenn via the contact form to find out rates* for in-person visits and availability and to customize a program that fits your school/library’s needs.

Skype Visits

All the way on the other side of the country? Jenn offers free 20-minute Skype visits year-round for classrooms and book clubs. Get in touch to schedule yours.
