The above fees include five signed copies of my picture books of your choice. I work with a local bookseller, Rachel Wood of Scrawl Books and will have books shipped directly to you. I will sign and address the books during my visit.

Fees do not include meal, travel, and lodging expenses.

Kids love autographed books! You can order directly from the publisher at a discounted rate, or work with a local bookseller. Find one near you on IndieBound.
