Cynthia loves to speak with students, teachers, and other readers and writers. Please contact her about a virtual or in-person visit. She’ll discuss your needs and goals and design a presentation that meets them.
There are many possible topics! Here are some ideas:
- her books and their topics (nature, transformations, botany, geology, cybersecurity)
- how STEAM subjects (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) are related
- where writers get ideas
- tips on the writing process (creativity, patience, persistence, and more!)
- having fun with nonfiction
- creative writing about nature.
She can do read-aloud’s, Q&A’s, slide presentations, games, or a combination of these.
