Author Visits and Resources

With three books coming out in 2024, I’m currently scheduling in-person and virtual events with bookstores, schools, and libraries in Chicagoland, the Midwest, and beyond. I’m also happy to discuss existing books A Hot Mess and Rockin’ the Boat (included in the downloadable media packet).

Events can focus on any specific book, on writing and author careers in general, or on specific topics covered by the books (elections, government policy, climate change).

For visits focused on either fiction or nonfiction, I am happy to tailor discussion to the audience and to talk with organizers in advance to plan an event that best suits their needs.

Event Options: Audience question-and-answer; Moderator interview followed by Q&A; Presentation followed by Q&A; Reading followed by Q&A. I will also do book club visits and readings for Animal Husbandry.

Also, for teachers and librarians, there’s an existing Teaching Guide with some ideas for how to use Votes of Confidence in the classroom. My publisher issued with the last edition of Votes, but the activities and discussion questions are still applicable with the new edition. You can download a copy here for free.
