School Visits

I’m happy to do online or in person visits to musical groups, classrooms, home school groups, girl scout troops, libraries, etc… to read IN ONE EAR & OUT THE OTHER: ANTONIA BRICO & HER AMAZINGLY MUSICAL LIFE. I love to talk to kids about Antonia Brico, who broke barriers for women in the field of orchestral conducting whom I knew as a teenager while playing in the Brico Symphony. Here is a link to a student’s story about about how an author visit to her classroom on zoom during the pandemic impacted her life.

I also like to share with students about revising, telling your own story, and where to find inspiration for writing. I love to teach kids how to make their own conducting baton, and instruct students in basic conducting patterns.

I ‘d be delighted to answer questions about the process of publishing a book through a traditional publisher, how long it takes, and hidden surprises I’ve found along the way.
