Bobbie loves coming to schools and libraries to meet her readers. She is happy to visit classrooms or larger groups in an auditorium. She does talks on how she became a writer, what inspired her books, the importance of research, character development, and point of view. She's also happy to tailor her talk to your needs. She always leaves plenty of time at the end for questions — that’s her favorite part. She's also happy to sign copies of her books.
Skype visits are a great way for Bobbie to talk with readers far away. She has visited with kids in rural areas in Missouri, Ohio, Kansas, Colorado, and Vermont who would otherwise not have the opportunity to meet an author. Her 30 minute moderated Q&A Skype visits are free.
Contact her for information on longer visits.
