I love visiting schools, libraries and attending book festivals!

I am available to talk to a wide range of age groups since I write picture books, middle grade, YA and books for adults. I'm always happy to do Skype sessions, too!

Generally for school visits, I have 3 large-group assemblies during a school day: a 35-minute presentation for K-1, a 45-minute presentation for grades 2-3 and 4-5/6. Each assembly includes a power point and related activities. I’m also happy to sign and personalize books.

Barbara Shostal, the librarian at Hunter College Elementary School New York City,  expresses this about one of my many visits there: 

“It was magical and educational having Sally visit our school. It was great to have her both talk about her work, make it accessible to the children, yet show them the importance of having talent and passion.” 
Angela Perna, Librarian at St. Hilda's St. Hughes in NYC says about Sally's most recent visit: "Students got to see the journey that a book takes before the audience gets to read it, from generating an idea, to writing, revising, and editing, to partnering with an illustrator, to finding a publisher and selling the book."

Book sales

I encourage schools and libraries to coordinate book sales prior to my visit. Whenever possible, please arrange for these book sales through your local bookstore. Please contact me directly for more information at or use the form below.
