Below is a list of fees I charge for school visits. I encourage you to look at the testimonials from previous visits. Please use these fees as a guideline. I realize that many schools are strapped for funds, so I try to work with each school, tailoring visits and fees according to each school’s situation.
A Sample of schools, who have had large adoptions of my books:
Tolman High School
Williamsville High School
Houdini and Benny
Rye-Neck Middle School
Henry Barnard School
North Dartmouth Middle School
St. Michael’s (Fall River)
Curtis Corner Middle School
1) If I can drive to the school and back in one day, I offer a free visit if the school adoption is significant. This visit will include no more than two presentations/Q&A sessions. If you want to add a small workshop with students, I add $100, unless the adoption is over 300.
2) If I have to travel, that means I usually spend the whole day. In this case, transportation and room and meals must be included, plus a $1000 stipend. The stipend is negotiable if the book adoption is significant.
3) I try to do free local short visits to libraries or schools, as long as the kids are prepared and have read the book under discussion. Those visits depend on how busy I am at the time.
What is most important to me is that kids have read and discussed or written on a book before I come. The last thing they want is another adult lecturing them about a book they haven’t read.
Again, always feel free to contact me. As I said above, my experience tells me that all schools have different needs and possess different resources.
