Readings For Children

I really enjoy doing readings. I have spoken to a wide range of grades – from Kindergarten classes to Grade 8’s. Also, I’m retired now so I am available at any time of year.

My readings are approximately an hour long, and include a reading of at least one of my books and a presentation on how books are made, tailored to the age of the group.

Because I write picture books I prefer a group of not more than 60 at a time. It’s important that the kids can be close enough to see the pictures, and this is difficult with larger groups. I also prefer that the group be approximately of the same grade level.

My rates are as follows:

Per reading (45-60 minutes)……………………$175*

Per half-day (2 readings)………………………..$300*

Per full day (4 readings)………………………….$600*

*plus mileage (37.5¢/km)

If lunch or overnight accommodation is needed, that would also be your responsibility.

Partial funding may be available through the Saskatchewan Writers Guild, The Writers Union of Canada or the Canada Council.
