AUTHOR VISITS

Deborah loves spending time with her readers. She believes that a well-planned author visit can be an inspiring experience for students, teachers, and the author! Her programs vary depending on the size, ages, and needs of your group. They range from simple storytimes to school presentations in which she “shows and tells” her process — how she “writes with words and pictures” and turns an idea into a finished book.

Please contact Deborah for more information about her Author Visits. She is also happy to speak with adults.


The children could not stop talking about you and your work after you left. Your thoughts/struggles/and joys spoke so directly to their experiences... Your passion fueled their work throughout the rest of the week... Thank you for providing that for our writers, and for being so warm and open to them.
— Katy Botta, Kindergarten Teacher, New Haven
