Elizabeth and Lucky are available for school visits (and virtual visits). One of Elizabeth's favorite parts of being an author is meeting with kids at schools and sharing Lucky's stories. (Lucky loves it too!)
Presentations are geared towards preK-3rd grade and are both engaging and educational. In addition to info specifically related to each book (reading of the map/ local geography and rescue dog awareness) The process of writing a picture book is discussed.
The themes in the books, friendship, kindness, gratitude and teamwork are explored.
Also included is a reading of the selected book and Q&A.
Books are offered to students at a discounted rate, personalized and signed.
Call or email Elizabeth to discuss author visit options and the different presentations offered.
During these unprecedented times, we can work with you to come up with the best option for your students.
Virtual visits using zoom and google classrooms are also offered.
What teachers/librarians are saying about Elizabeth's presentations.
Elizabeth's presentation was informative and engaging. Her description of how the story was written was relevant to what my students are currently learning. I am looking forward to adding Elizabeth's books to my classroom library.
Cindy Matracia, 2nd grade teacher
Elizabeth was very professional and easy to work with in finding a time for her to come visit my school. Elizabeth and Lucky made the presentation interesting/exciting for the younger students. The students at my school enjoyed the story and being able to see what the main character of the story, Lucky, looked like since it was loosely based on a true story.

Elizabeth inspired my students to want to create animal stories just like the adventures of Lucky and Hershey!
Catherine Blish, 2nd grade teacher
The presentation was fantastic! I thought the pace was perfect for our elementary students, and you discussed everything that is interesting to them. An excellent kick-off to PARP!
Sara Oliver, Librarian
It was perfect in content and time for my second grade students, the presentation was engaging and informative. The students loved the virtual visit from Elizabeth. Meeting Lucky and Hershey was a bonus!!
Patrica Hopfenberg 2nd grade Teacher
The students loved meeting Lucky (and Elizabeth!) and learning about her adventures in Saratoga. Seeing all of the local landmarks in the book was exciting for the children because they were familiar with them. It was a very engaging presentation.
