Songs & Stories Presentations for Home School Organizations
I would like to offer your organization an author visit and presentation at one of your future meeting, titled Songs & Stories of Louisiana. I am the author of these children’s picture books: Cajun ABC, Louisiana Animals ABC, and Louisiana Night Before Christmas. For older students I have the Book of Facts About the Scots, Irish, & Other Celts. All three children’s books have been featured books in the Louisiana Book Festival in Baton Rouge. The presentation is fun, uses audience participation, and has many photo moments. There is a show-and-tell table, I use students for a Cajun band to play along with me, I have family friendly songs, and I talk about my books and the craft of writing. If you book a presentation, I will design a flier for you to send out before I visit.
A little more about me: I am a college instructor for the University of Louisiana at Monroe and Delta Community College. I have found through the years that homeschooled students are typically my best students. Here is a chance for you to have an award-winning author of fifteen published books, an experienced and well-known Scottish and Irish Storyteller, songwriter, and folk singer with five CDs and several single releases. I have worked with many schools, libraries, and festivals. You can see that list of venues on this blog, dated August 15. I would be honored if I could work with your homeschool organization as well. A stipend to cover travel and lodging (if necessary) would be appreciated.
I hope to hear from you! My contact information is below.
