Events

I love doing author visits to schools, libraries, bookstores, PTA events for both students and parents, and anything else you might be interested in!  I am happy to tailor each visit to what will be most beneficial to you and your audience but some ideas are speaking about my journey to becoming an author, the inspiration for my stories (especially not seeing my community represented in children’s literature), Q&As and guided writing workshops for all ages. Contact me, I’d love to hear from you.

Author Visits 2023-2024

I stopped posting about individual school visits on my website but that doesn’t mean I’ve stopped doing them!

Book Club Event with Kushner’s PTA

This was a most special event that I am still on a high from. On the third night of Chanukah, the Joseph Kushner Hebrew Academy/Rae Kushner Yehiva High School (a Modern Orthodox day school in NJ)’s PTA (KPAC) sponsored an author visit where I spoke to parents and students about my journey to becoming an…

Author Visit at Beit Rabban Middle School

The most unflattering photos of me at the BEST event 😭. Also, I’m not sure why I’m looking down as I actually spoke off the cuff — I think the second photo must be from when I was reading a short excerpt from Honey and Me. In any case, I had the most wonderful time…
