Review of a School Visit:

"We had the amazing opportunity to host author Gayle Rosengren at Forest Glen Elementary in Glen Ellyn, Illinois. She spoke with all our 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th graders, giving two very different presentations that were both age appropriate and inspiring. She talked about what it was like writing, how much research goes into publishing historical fiction (and what changes you sometimes have to make in your writing because of your research) and also what it was like to tell a story. She has a wonderfully warm personality that both the staff and students appreciated. She went out of her way to encourage the kids to email her directly with their thoughts and/or questions after they read her book, "What the Moon Said," which made the students feel honored."

To discuss these or other topics that may better serve your students, as well as my fee, please email me (see below).
