Description of the Author’s Presentation

Thank you for your interest in a school visit with Raina Telgemeier! She loves to connect with kids all over the world. Although she may not be able to visit your school in person, Raina is available for a limited number of virtual visits via Skype every year.

A Skype visit can last up to 30-minutes with a teacher or librarian serving a moderator.

Raina likes to begin the visit with a short intro followed by a Q&A with the group. She is always impressed when the kids prepare questions in advance. We ask that teachers please screen questions before the event starts.

If you’re interested in a Skype visit with Raina, please fill out the author request form and include the following information:

  • Your top three preferred dates and times
  • Your time zone
  • The ages of the audience participants
  • The total number of participants
  • Your commitment to honor the author’s fee

Raina will consider invitations for virtual visits 4-6 months in advance of the scheduled event date.

Once you submit your request, someone from the author visits department will respond between 7 and 10 business days. Thank you again for reaching the author visits department!


The fee is $250.
