Author Visits

Author visits are a great way to engage readers and get them excited about the literary world. And I enjoy doing them too!

I’m happy to talk about:

  • My books, how they came to be, and their importance in the world today.
  • Researching material and weaving factual events to fictional characters.
  • Cultural diversity and celebrating personal diversity.
  • Pathways to publication and a writing career (more suitable for adults).
  • Other topics or discussions you feel would benefit your community.
  • También puedo hacer presentaciones en español.

I also love giving creative writing workshops:

  • Developing ideas and brainstorming.
  • Creating well-rounded and interesting characters.
  • Story arcs.
  • Settings and sensory descriptions.
  • Any other aspect of creative writing that would be most useful for your students/community.

I offer a variety of visits:

  • In person presentations to your school, library, and community.
  • Half and full day visits which can include multiple presentations, meet ‘n’ greet receptions, Q&A, book signing, etc.
  • Virtual visits using Skype or Zoom.
  • A free 15-minute virtual visit if you’ve bought a classroom set of books or are part of a book club (such as Battle of the Books).

Please contact me for costs, travel, and additional questions.

Discounts available for New Mexico schools/libraries.

I travel often and if I’m already in your area, that will reduce travel expenses.

If you are a Title 1 school or low-income district, please let me know what you can afford and I’ll let you know if that’s realistic for me or not.

Thanks and looking forward to meeting you soon! Email: adiaz(at)alexandra-diaz(dot)com
