Author Visit Programs

Kenn Nesbitt on SkypeWould you like to get your students excited about reading and writing? My online author visits are high-energy, engaging, educational, and, above all, funny! Your students will have so much fun laughing, they will come away with a desire to put pencil to paper and visit the library.

Each year I visit hundreds of schools each year via the Internet, using Zoom, Skype, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, WebEx, and other online videoconferencing software. Online author visits are live, online, interactive videoconference presentations, that require only a PC, Mac, or iPad with a broadband Internet connection. I can present to any number of students in each session, limited only by your space and equipment (projector, speakers, etc.)
