My author visits are a dynamic, behind-the-scenes look at my entire bookmaking process, from the initial ideas and on-location research to the final marks on paper. Using sketches, photos, and footage from the field, I deliver a unique presentation on what I do and what I've learned: Why do I write nonfiction picture books? How do I approach my research? What kinds of mistakes have led to my biggest breakthroughs? Students will have fun and feel inspired to create, to discover, and to learn more about the way things live.
