I have heard Marc speak at conferences, and he is engaging and energetic.
He has written a range of books, and his newest picture book is illustrated
by a local artist. He can really connect to kids around bringing the
writing process alive.

Subject: Hi Ellen and Junia: picture book that changed history - week of
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
*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
part motivational, part educational, and all entertaining for any age
- my Batman book changed history
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 Tanzania
*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 me.
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
