Darleen is giving a 25% DISCOUNT for her 25th year of doing school author visits......
See my slideshow below to show 25 years of school author visits!
I can't believe I've been doing author visits in schools for 25 years now! November 2016 marks my 25th year and I so wish I knew how many author visits I've done. I would imagine it's in the high hundreds, perhaps close to a thousand, maybe? I know--that's a LOT of visits and the best thing about these visits is seeing the kids enjoying my books, getting their hugs and their sweet notes/drawings, and knowing my books are touching lives.
on all my school author visitsthis year!
So help me celebrate my 25th year of doing school author visits all over the U.S. by inviting me to YOUR school and save 25% off my speaking fee!

Teachers & Librarians,
Are you getting your students ready
for the upcoming state writing test?
Darleen has a special nonfiction 5-paragraph
essay workshop just for YOU!
New "Nonfiction for Mummies" Writing Workshop!
Darleen presents a fun and "spooky" PowerPoint presentation about ancient Egyptian mummies (with photos of real mummies! Kids will love it!) and then provides students with a "fact sheet" that covers all the facts they learned during the presentation.
Then she directs students as they write a 5-paragraph essay and foscuses on the three parts of an essay: Introduction, Body, Conclusion and using the "5Ws & H" as students write the body of their essay.
It's a FUN FUN and very INFORMATIVE hands-on writing workshop that your students will love. So invite Darleen to teach this workshop to your students. You'll be glad you did--so will your students!
And this year's the perfect year to invite her as her school author visits are 25% off!
