Susie Salom Author Visit Kit

Grades

3–5, 6–8

Susie Salom has always had a special spot in her heart for people passing through the wonder time between childhood and adolescence. She loves visiting schools to speak to young students about the message they want to send into our complex, colorful world, as well as the oh-so-critical relationship they nurture with themselves.

Her style is humorous, encouraging, and interactive, and she is fluent in Spanish. Kyle Finds Her Way is her debut novel.

Susie Salom loves sunny, chirpy days, strawberry tamales, and the color blue. She once purposely got on the wrong bus to keep talking to a new friend on her first day of sixth grade and has been following her adventuresome heart ever since.

She currently resides in her hometown of El Paso, Texas with her husband, daughter, and their gorgeous cat. For reviews, interviews, jokes, quotes, and other fun stuff, please visit her website at susiesalom.com.  

Description of the Author’s Presentation

Who Am I and What Do I Have to Say?

Grades 4-6
45 minutes

Our world is all about messages. As links in a shimmering, awe-inspiring chain, we transmit the messages of others constantly based on what we hear, see, and experience. But what is your message? What were you put on this earth to specifically, uniquely communicate? And how does building a relationship with yourself and with the source of inspiration help you to build the right relationship with everyone else?

Conference and Festival Appearances

Susie is open to presenting at conferences and festivals and is happy to tailor her presentation to the themes, needs, and timeframes of a particular gathering. She is comfortable with public speaking and always has a lot of encouragement to dole out on a number of topics relating to communication, the creative process, one’s relationship to oneself, and to others. She is also constantly reading, meditating, and discovering new things about what it means to be human so spontaneity and freshness is key to her preparation style.

AV and Tech Needs for In-Person Visits

Susie requires a (working!) microphone with lots of cord to move around and a podium.

Honorarium

Susie charges $600 per day plus expenses. Travel expenses are waived within 40 miles of El Paso.

Schools and libraries may order books at a discounted rate by visiting The Scholastic Teacher Store or by calling 1-800-SCHOLASTIC.
