Would you like me to come to your school, library, or bookstore? I would love to!! Please drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a visit. I have two presentations to choose from:
- Pirate Women: an informative (yet exciting!) presentation about the lives and legends of the major pirate women throughout history. This presentation is a combination of world history, biography, and storytelling. It has been known to elicit some laughs, as well! Has a powerpoint that goes along with it, too.
- (Re)telling History: a writing workshop where I discuss why women pirates have been ignored throughout history, and how history changes based on who is recording it. Each student chooses a historical event and retells it through the eyes of an unconventional narrator. We brainstorm, read aloud, and offer critiques together.
Let me know if I can come share pirates with you.
I can’t promise to make this face, but I probably will.
