Nine of us children's writers and illustrators in Northern California have joined together to form a speaker's bureau. We are each available for school visits, events, book signings, teacher workshops and library presentations for both children and adults.
You can find us at our website www.speakingofkidsbooks.com.
There you will also be directed to our individual websites for further information about the types of workshops and presentations we offer and how we can help share our love of children's literature with you and the children you love.
