"I will be available throughout the 2018-2019 school year to visit schools and talk to students in Northern and Southern Vermont. I can present about any of my Picture books about friendship and teamwork. I can also discuss the process of writing and illustrating picture books with students." --Jack Curtin

"I am the author of The 57 Bus, which was recently named to the Green Mountain Book Award Master List, as well as the award-winning picture books The Antlered Ship and Escargot. I am coming to Vermont to deliver a keynote at Johnson State College on September 24 and I am hoping you can help me spread the word to Vermont school librarians that I am hoping to book some additional school visits that week before moving on to events in other parts of New England. Because my travel is covered, schools and libraries would only need to cover my speaking fee and accommodations." Dashka Slater

Available for Skype talks

"I'm Paula. I'm a tenured faculty librarian in Southern California, a former ESL student picture books. I wonder if your institution would be interested in purchasing my diverse books. I do Skype presentations too. I just did one for about 80 children in Illinois. I'm used to work with institutions with all sorts of funds, so please let me know if you are interested. I work with children and adults learning English too."

Jennifer and John Churchman

Beth Shelly from Westford Elementry hosted John Churchman and said "He was affordable ($200 because he's so close to us), very easy to work with, engaging and kind to kids, and he brought 2 of his sheep dogs. The kids really enjoyed his visit and I would recommend him to other elementary libraries."
