Author visits can be adapted to reflect school curriculum with input from teachers or librarians. For her presentations, Ms. Rotner shares an autobiographical piece that tells how she became a children’s book author and photo-illustrator. Her multi-cultural book content resonates for diverse populations. Her work inspires children to make discoveries about their world and their feelings. Clear, colorful photos are matched with simple, concise text. A PowerPoint presentation takes the audience through themes that encourage interaction. For older grades she explains the bookmaking process from idea to conception; including prototypes, layouts and different design options.
School Visit Fee: $1200 per day.
This includes up to 4 presentations each 45 minutes, plus a book signing session at the end of the day. A single day visit may be shared with a nearby school. Travel expenses are additional. A deposit to hold the date is required and the balance is due on the day of my visit.
