Gary Alipio is currently booking author visits for bookstores, schools, libraries and other appearances (March–July of 2018).
Why Meet An Author?
One of my favorite parts of being a children’s author is talking to kids. I enjoy sharing the process of developing and writing stories in a fun and relatable way with them … after all, they are still living it. I hope that by meeting with a published author, my visit will make every kid feel included and more confident about their own creativity and voice. #KeepWriting
For Bookstores/Libraries, etc: I can discuss topics like the publishing journey, the creative writing process, or I can simply read and engage in Q+A about being an author.
School Topic Ideas: How did a reluctant reader get published?; Storytelling – where do I start?; Find the story inside you
For Schools: I ask that you distribute book order flyers with students/parents two weeks prior to visiting (if possible), and that at least 7 books are pre-ordered for Q and As (see book order flyer below – to come). Note: Studies show that actual OWNERSHIP of books increases the chances that students will develop a stronger read-at-home habit, increasing reading skills.
