SCHOOL AUTHOR VISITS AND PRESENTATIONS FOR WRITERS

I am happy to work with you designing presentations that meet your needs.

SCHOOL AUTHOR VISITS

FUN, ENGAGING PRESENTATIONS WITH KIDS ALWAYS IN MIND.

Presentations:

THE PEOPLE WHO MAKE A BOOK HAPPEN

Who are the people involved in making a book land in the hands of readers? Children act out the parts of an author, critique partners, an editor, an agent, and an illustrator.

WHERE DO IDEAS COME FROM?

Using a fun formula, we work together to generate one or two book ideas. Children can use this formula any time to make their book ideas happen.

How to find nonfiction ideas for books, articles, and assignments. Learn all about researching nonfiction ideas. What is a primary source? What is a secondary source? Where to find the best sources.

TESTIMONIAL

Barbara Lowell has visited my school twice in the last two years.  She interacts beautifully with the students; they get so excited when I tell them she is coming.  We’re looking forward to a new book from Barbara and another visit this year. — Sharon Martin, Reading Specialist, Cushing Upper Elementary, Cushing, Oklahoma
