I'm available for school visits throughout New Jersey.
Please send me an email through the contact page with the date, times and program you're interested in. Fees may vary due to size, number of presentations and travel distance. My programs are outlined below.
Visits last about 30 minutes. Included are readings from my books and time for questions and answers. We also play a game or two about books. I bring along coloring sheets and craft projects teachers can share with their students afterwards. I'm also available to sign books.
(TRAINS DON'T SLEEP, BIG SISTER, LITTLE MONSTER, MEG GOLDBERG ON PARADE, A GRANDMA LIKE YOURS/ A GRANDPA LIKE YOURS)
Visits last about 45 minutes and include a power point presentation about how my books are born. I'll share my "rejection collection", my writer's journey and the first book I wrote and illustrated at age 11. I'll also do a reading of at least 1 of my books. There will be time for questions and book signing. (TRAINS DON'T SLEEP, BIG SISTER, LITTLE MONSTER.)
I'm developing a program based around my upcoming picture book called HAND IN HAND.
Ruthi promises to never let go of her brother, Leib, but the Holocaust, adoption and growing up in different countries keep them apart until, many years later, she finds a way to keep that promise. Coming from Apples & Honey Press/ Behrman House 2019.
If there's interest, this program might also include a workshop about writing free verse poetry. (HAND IN HAND, TWO SWEET PEAS.)
In addition, I sometimes do 20 minute SKYPE visits for free for schools beyond my travel zone. Send me an email through the contact page with your request & information and I'll try my best to fit you into my schedule. There's also a free Teacher's Guide for TRAINS DON'T SLEEP available on my home page.
