This is an exciting time for The Hole in the Sky. Thanks to Skype-an-Author and Paperback Swap, students in several schools are incorporating The Hole in the Sky into their reading curriculum. Greenwood Elementary School in Denver, Colorado has scheduled "One Book, One Grade, The Hole in the Sky", so that all the students in fifth grade can read the book at the same time. The students at Greenwood invited me to visit, and I recently met with all the fifth grade students in the library at Greenwood and had a great time asking and answering questions. Teachers, students and librarians from many schools have created questions and ideas for lesson plans, which are available on request.
I am committed to promoting the joy of reading and writing with students from all income levels. If needed, I donate books to schools and give my time through Skype visits at no charge. If you are a librarian or a teacher and are interested in receiving a sufficient quantity of books for a book club or a entire class to read the book, please contact me at email@example.com. You can download the ebook from a link on this page.
Things are changing rapidly in the publishing world, but for a student, there's still nothing quite like opening a beautiful hardback book full of possibility and magic. I would love to share my book with you and look forward to spending time with you and your students. All the best.
Audiences: 4th grade to 6th grade students, mother-daughter book clubs, library book clubs
Available Times: Monday, Friday, and Saturday from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM MST
If you would like to record the Skype session with the author, please make this request in advance when you make arrangements for the session. We also appreciate having permission to record the session for the production of videos.
A technical run through prior to the presentation by the school staff and author to avoid issues with the classroom presentation itself.
