It's a Skype Celebration!

for CARL and the Meaning of Life

on CARL’s Book Birthday, Tuesday, April 2, 2019, and Earth Day, Monday, April 22, from 9:00 am - 4:00 pm Eastern

Two days full of classroom Skypes — what better way to celebrate a new book?

It's always fun for me to meet children from around the world—to chat, read, and answer questions.  If you are interested in celebrating the publication of CARL and the meaning of life with a 15-20 minute Skype on April 2 or April 22, 2019, please fill out the entire form below, and I will do my best to accommodate you.

For Our Visit:

  • It's best if classrooms are familiar with at least one of my other in-print books before our Skype. Well-prepared and enthusiastic children enjoy and benefit from author visits the most!

  • Students' questions for Deborah should be prepared in advance.

  • Please be familiar with Skype before arranging a visit.

  • Please set your webcam up so that Deborah can see students’ faces.

  • Confirm that your audio and video are working, before the visit.

  • Send a contact request before the day of the visit, to “debfreedman”.

  • Please do not record an entire Skype session.

  • Select a time slot HERE, and please provide the following info:
