School and Library Visits
MEET THE AUTHOR VISITS
(Full or Half Days)
I enjoy visiting schools to read my books, tell the stories behind the books, talk about the writing process, discuss how a book is published, answer questions, and get kids excited about writing. I always tuck additional learning and fun related to each of my books into the presentation, too. I am glad to visit individual classes, a grade level, or the entire school. I will gladly customize my visit to the needs of your students and/or school. If distance is a problem, Skype visits are also available.

Rob Sanders not only taught our students about writing, he inspired them to write. His practical, hands-on instruction engaged our students, helped them see a professional writer in action, and gave them a chance to write like pros, too.
