Mary Beth does school visits for all age levels, from elementary to high school and college classes. Most Workshops can be tailored to the students’ ages. Teachers or Librarians may select from Mary Beth’s list of Workshops or request that she speak on a different topic for School Visits.
$300 for half a day, which consists of two programs and a meet and greet/book signing period, plus travel expenses. (Schools within an hour’s drive pay mileage only. Schools over an hour may be asked to provide hotel accommodations.)
$500 for a full day, which consists of four programs and a meet and greet/book signing period, plus travel expenses. (Schools within an hour’s drive pay mileage only. Schools over an hour may be asked to provide hotel accommodations.)
Week-long Residencies, School Visits, or Professional Learning Programs taking place more than one hour’s drive from Mary Beth’s home may require hotel accommodations. Multiple programs at different schools can be scheduled during the same week to help allay travel expenses.
Residencies and School Visits are limited in number and will be scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. Payment is expected at the time of the visit unless prior arrangements are made.
It’s helpful if Residency students read Aimee and On the Head of a Pin prior to the Residency. Chapters of other books may be assigned for those classes with limited class time (less than one hour).
