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 (currently virtual only, on the videoconferencing platform of your choice) on topics related to my writing process, publishing journey, and how each of my books came to be. Click here to check out my presentation options, and please contact me at lauriemorrisonwrites [at] gmail [dot] com to inquire about cost and availability.
