School Visits & Events

As a former middle school teacher, I love doing school visits and connecting with readers! I offer a limited number of free twenty-minute virtual visits, which include a short reading and Q&A. I also offer longer presentations on topics related to my writing process, publishing journey, and how each of my books came to be. I am currently booking in-person and virtual visits for the 2022-2023 school year. Click here to check out my presentation options, and please contact me at lauriemorrisonwrites [at] gmail [dot] com to inquire about cost and availability.
