Speaking to Readers


Skype

Large group presentations by the author are often combined with writing or reading workshop sessions during a day's visit to a school. At times a partial day at a school is combined with an evening presentation for the community at the school or at a public library. Jacqueline's presentations are also well suited for writers and readers conferences.

Jacqueline Briggs Martin – Jackie is the author of the Caldecott award winning biography of Wilson A. Bentley, Snowflake Bentley and many others, including  The Chiru of High Tibet which took her to the high plains of the Chang Tang plateau in Tibet, and recent biographies Farmer Will Allen and the Growing Table and Alice Waters and the Trip to Delicious.

Sessions during her author appearances are always varied to address a specific audience but do address certain themes that  characterize most of her books. Students want to know the story of stories so she often talks about how her books begin, the transformations that occur during the writing process, problems that writers encounter as well as the excitement and occasional satisfactions. She'll discuss the writing process — the importance of revision, and the possibilities for students to create their own written records.

She speaks to assembly sized groups or conducts more intimate reading or writing workshops with classroom sized groups.

She is a sought after speaker for educator inservices, conferences, and parent/family evenings.
