If you’re a parent, teacher, librarian, or homeschooler in Southeastern PA, Lehigh Valley PA, New Jersey, or Delaware you could win one of four FREE author visits! (See book club bonus below).
Let your students discover how authors are not secret fairies after all but actual people who live all around them – and if we can make our dreams come true, so can they. 🙂
In my school visits I share a peek at my own writing journey (with lots of humor!), the three nuggets of story telling, and the importance of not giving up – revision and perseverance!
Out of the area to win? I do extended travel paid author visits and am negotiable.
Here’s what Erica Cranden, English Teacher at William Annin Middle School, NJ, had to say:
“Ms. Galanti came to visit our middle school’s creative writing group, and she was awesome! She shared her creative process from start to finish and is a talented writer and an inspiration. By the end of her engaging presentation, the students felt as though they, too, were capable of achieving ultram their goals of writing a book and becoming published authors. We can’t wait to have her back!”
ANYWHERE BOOK CLUB BONUS!
Any town library book club, private book club, school book club, or classroom of 8 members or more that reads Joshua and the Lightning Road will receive either a free in-person book club visit (with swag!) or a Skype visit. Just contact me about setting up a visit.
HOW TO ENTER:
Comment on this post or contact me by November 15th with why you would love to win an author visit. I will randomly select four schools as winners for visits to be scheduled at their convenience. Winners will be notified by November 18th.
“Thank you so much for coming to discuss your writing process and background with our fifth and sixth grade students. Your manner during the presentation ensured that each student was interested and engaged! Thank you again for being so generous with your time.” –Melanie Jones, Librarian, Kutz Elementary, Doylestown, PA

This would be wonderful for the kids to see– a local author. Might run into you at the park.. The grocery store.. In town. Makes it real.
Donna Galanti says
Yes, Erynn! And helps kids see that real people are making their dreams come true too – and so can they!

What an awesome opportunity! My school is out of the area- but I love this idea and what a great way for kids to learn about Joshua and his story and to learn about writing. Thanks for sharing!

Stephanie, what a shame! Perhaps someday… I also do extended travel for paid author visits and fees are negotiable 🙂 . Feel free to pass along to others you may know in the area! http://www.donnagalanti.com/school-visits/
