I can say that Andy Weir (The Martian) lives in Mountain View - he spoke
at Menlo last year. Truly funny guy - the kids loved him. Stephanie Kuehn
is also Mountain View I think; Robin Sloan is SF or Berkeley. Those are
mostly high school (Andy wold be fine for either); I haven't had many MS
specific authors here. Talk to the folks at Kepler's bookstore in Menlo
Park - they are very helpful at bringing in authors. Kepler's is great - if
they have someone touring they will often bring them to your school for the
price of book sales. Years ago they brought John Green and we didn't have
to pay! They have brought Tamora Pierce, Cory Doctorow, a couple of others
that I'm already forgetting...

I am trying to plan some author visits for this Spring/Fall that would
appeal to either a middle school or high school audience. Being relatively
new to the area, I have few author connections. Has anyone had a good
experience/know anyone local who may be interested in doing a school visit?
Thanks for any help you can lend!
