Particularly any other schools in the North Bay that might be interested in
sharing the cost.

Subject: Hi Ellen and Junia: picture book that changed history - week of March
Hope you're well!
I'm the Maryland author of books for young readers of all ages including Bill
the Boy Wonder: The Secret Co-Creator of Batman (inspired both a Hulu
and a TED talk), Boys of Steel: The Creators of Superman (made the front page
of USA Today), Brave Like My Brother, and the funny picture book The Chupacabra
Ate the Candelabra.
I'm scheduling school visits in your area and would love to show your students
(and staff) what the buzz is about...
"In 30 years of hosting best-selling authors at our school, Marc's presentation
was the best I have ever witnessed. Judging from the student response, he
transformed what it means to be a writer."
—Karen Palko, middle school teacher, International School of Kuala Lumpur,
Dates: March 27-31, 2017; no prep work required!
Rate: $600/assembly plus a portion of travel, minimum of three assemblies/day
(whether at one school or multiple); when I book three consecutive days, I
waive travel costs
Three key points:
* my talk shows how research is adventure and has a moving social justice
part motivational, part educational, and all entertaining for any age
* my Batman book changed
despite 76 years' worth of odds; the documentary (out in May 2017) is the
first-ever film based on a nonfiction children's book
* I have been invited to speak at schools in more than half the 50 states
and a dozen countries from Thailand to
Three more reactions:
* "Wow—incredible! An inspiration—absolutely gripping story everyone should
hear." —attendee, Charlotte S. Huck Children's Literature Festival, Redlands, CA
* "Your talk was really uplifting. It's beneficial for kids to hear under
any circumstances, but a lot of the points you made—especially the importance
of finding information where no one else is looking and believing you can
change things—are extra-vital at this particular moment in America. A lot of
the teachers were feeling the same thing." —Jen Chaney, PTA, Farmland
Elementary, Rockville, MD
* "You were AWESOME. I was near tears hearing the impression that you made
on my son. For weeks after your presentation, I continued to hear how your
message had resonated with many others." —Karin R. DeWispelaere, reading
resource teacher, Laurel Ridge Elementary, Fairfax, VA
Students, too, regularly humble
My schedule fills fast so if interested, please let me know ASAP?

P.S. This hilarious side project I created went viral: 83 children's authors
(from Lemony Snicket to Dan Santat) read aloud bad reviews of their own
