Description of the Author’s Presentation
Suggested audience: K–6
Maximum number of presentations per day: 4
Melvin's school visits usually start with a step-by-step discussion of the writing process, relating it to bound books — and shows samples of each phase of the process. For the major part of his presentation, he involves the audience in interactive give-and-take and question-and-answer games related to the award-winning series, Scholastic Question and Answers, which he wrote with his wife, Gilda.
Note: Special arrangements can be made to have both Gilda and Melvin Berger to appear at a school or in a school district — either in joint presentations or in individual presentations.
