Jennifer Holm, Yuyi Morales, and Christian Robinson. Books Inc. sponsors our

Gene Yang (American Born Chinese) is an excellent speaker. Gene may still
live in the Bay Area. The following is from a generic reply that I recently
"His speaking fee is $5,000 plus expenses (coach airfare, ground
transportation, hotel, and meals). Gene can speak to a variety of topics
(diversity, being an outsider, education and comics, the art of storytelling:
written and visual) and customize his presentation to your students."

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!
