Visits & Events

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 possibilities! 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.

What Attendees Say…

“Cynthia Argentine was very knowledgeable in her subject matter and was able to answer questions she was asked by curious, interested students. Cynthia’s discussion about her book at Cybersecurity 101 definitely grabbed their attention, and the related hands-on activities after the discussion made the content relevant to them.  She was very patient with them and answered their many questions with ease. — Laura Gangstad, Assistant Department Head, Youth Services, Hussey-Mayfield Memorial Public Library
