Emma is available to make author visits to your school, library or performance venue, and can also make virtual author visits to your classroom via SKYPE. To book Emma for a presentation, reading and/or question-and-answer session for your class, please email Hachette Book Group’s Author Appearances department at: Author.Appearances@hbgusa.com
These sessions work best if the audience is familiar with at least one of Emma’s books and have prepared questions about the book or the writing process ahead of time.
“Emma presented an incredible Skype session for my Seventh and Eighth Grade Band students. Over the years, I have been able to host several special presentations for my students. However, I have never completed a presentation and then had 103 middle school students gaze at me with a look of wonder, having several of them grin and whisper, “Wow”. Many of them came up to me afterwards and said how “cool” it was, thanked me, and asked if we could do it again next year. Emma truly had their attention for the entire time! She drew the students in, through her presentation, and through listening to and commenting on the students’ own poems and questions. I highly encourage all educators to contact Emma about a Skype session!”
