Author Visits

School Visits (preK - 8)

Julia’s presentations are specifically tailored for both the age range and group size of the intended audience. Each presentation is a fast-paced, interactive experience, incorporating a variety of book-based activities to involve the audience, such as choral read-alouds, readers’ theater, “pop quizzes,” and multimedia props. As a former school librarian, Julia draws upon her experience with a variety of literacy strategies to ensure that her presentations inform as well as entertain.
