Ready to visit schools and share your book with young readers? Shannon will walk you through the ins and outs of setting up school visits: how to book visits, how much to charge, keeping kids engaged, and ideas for what you can talk about during your presentation. As a 25-year elementary teacher, Shannon knows what expectations schools have for convocations. As an author who has presented over 300 visits, she has lots of do's and don'ts to share too!
