Book an Event

Thank you so much for sharing my books with readers, and for thinking of inviting me to speak!

I am currently available for limited in-person and virtual events. This does not include in-person school visits. Sorry!

To request an in-person or virtual speaking engagement, please contact Authors Unbound, or view my SPEAKING PROFILE.

If you’re a school looking for a virtual visit and can’t afford a solo virtual event with me, please join me for one of my free, virtual public events! Once a month during the school year, I host a live online “school visit” that any and all schools, classrooms, and home learners can join in on. These events are an hour long. The first half of the event is a presentation about the inspiration and context behind my most recent and popular books (always including Refugee!), and he second half is a Q&A with questions solicited from the live audience. If you or your class can’t make a particular month’s event, don’t worry! I’ve got more on the way, and hopefully our schedules will eventually align. In the meantime, each live event is recorded, and the most recent event’s recording is available to watch online for free at any time for at least a month after it first aired. All you have to do is sign up for an event (again, for free) and the recording is automatically available to you by following the link after the live event is finished.

I usually take the summer months of June, July, and August off for the free virtual school visits. If you don’t see events listed for other months on there, I’m still trying to figure out the exact day and time! Those will be posted as soon as possible.

The best way to stay up-to-date on all my appearances is to subscribe to my occasional e-newsletter. You can sign up for my newsletter here.
