I tailor my multimedia presentations to the age, interests and size of each audience, and I especially enjoy speaking with students in grades 4 to 8. My presentations are an hour long, writing workshops are two hours, and I am usually available to make several presentations in one day, if desired. Please click the following links for descriptions of my presentations and information about how to prepare for an author visit.
“Thank you, Michelle! You were fantastic with the students. They were literally hanging on the edge of their seats the whole time. It was a wonderful experience for all.”
Barbara Scott, Waldron Mercy Academy, Merion Station, Pennsylvania
“Michelle was such a pleasant surprise. Both parents and children gave rave reviews of the evening and stayed late to get a few more words with her … The historical nature of her book made for interesting discussions of her research process. She was able to deconstruct what she did so that all could relate. Michelle made it clear that she was open to all manner of questions and critique; this put everyone at ease and the evening flew past with excited banter back and forth. We are all looking forward to more books from this author and future evenings together.”
Christianne Hayward, Christianne's Lyceum, Vancouver, BC
“Michelle delivered a varied and interactive presentation that had a challenging class of grade 4 and 5 students mesmerized.”
