Bio:

Nick is an author and an illustrator who follows the rules pretty well, except when he is writing. His superpower is coming up with ideas and sometimes they're good! He also comes up with a lot of jokes, and sometimes they're funny.

 

Nick illustrated The Great Big Scary Monster and wrote and illustrated Sloth VS Turtle. He lives in Haslett with his endlessly supportive wife and two endlessly energetic boys. He is currently working on a chapter book about an introvert, a robot, and the struggles of friendship. 


Presentation Description:
Visits and workshops are centered around promoting literacy by getting kids excited about reading, writing, drawing, and being creative! Presentations begin with Nick reading one of his books. From there, topics include generating story ideas, tools and mediums, Q&A, and always conclude with a drawing demonstration. Sessions can last 30 - 45 minutes. Mileage is charged at a rate of $0.58/mile for distances greater than 30 miles (driving from 48840). We will work with the school to distribute book order forms. These rates are effective for 2019-2020.


Half Day Visits: $350
Half-day events consist of three sessions. For smaller groups, a workshop session is an option and will focus on crafting stories through writing and illustrating.

Full Day Visits: $550
Full-day events consist of six sessions. For smaller groups, a workshop session is an option and will focus on crafting stories through writing and illustrating.

Split Full Day Visits: $600
Split full day consists of two half-day sessions at two schools in the same school district. For smaller groups, a workshop session is an option and will focus on crafting stories through writing and illustrating.

Virtual Visits: $200
Virtual visits are 45 minute sessions conducted via Skype, Google Hangouts, Zoom, or your preferred video service.
