School Visits

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* and availability and to customize a program that fits your school/library’s needs.

All the way on the other side of the country? Jenn offers free 20-minute Skype visits year-round for classrooms and book clubs on a first come, first served basis. Get in touch to find out more.

Pictured: That time Jenn took a bunch of tween and teen baseball fanatics from the Homewood Public Library (Homewood, IL) to their very first White Sox game as part of Summer Reading. We ate all of the hot dogs and got featured on the JumboTron. Who cares if the White Sox didn’t win?
