MEET DEBORAH AT THE NATIONAL BOOK FESTIVAL IN WASHINGTON, DC ON AUGUST 31 AND THE BOSTON BOOK FESTIVAL ON OCTOBER 19
IN-PERSON AND SKYPE AUTHOR VISITS FOR ALL AGES
My presentations are fun, content-rich, interactive—everyone gets to ask lots of questions—and highly engaging for both children and adults. I bring real scientist clothing to talk about SCIENTISTS GET DRESSED, and 3D-printed, life-size replicas of Beauty the bald eagle's prosthetic beak to talk about BEAUTY AND THE BEAK. I tailor every presentation to your school, grade/s or organization. My honorarium is based on audience size, presentation length and mode of presentation. Book purchases and discounts can be arranged. E-mail me via the contact form and let me know what kind of program you would like!.
