Classrooms, libraries, cafeterias, or gyms are all fine locations for the presentation. Note that it must be possible for the room to be made dark enough for the PowerPoint presentation to be seen by all.
Signings can be scheduled before, between, or after presentations. Please note that each book to be autographed should come with a slip of paper that gives the correct spelling of the name or names to be inscribed.
Books may be ordered directly from the author to be sent ahead of time or can be brought by the author on the day of the talk. The retail price of each paperback is $6.95, but school groups earn an approximately 15% discount, bringing the price to $6.00 per book. Schools can pass along the discount to the students or charge full price and use the extra money for fundraising.
