Events & School Visits

To request a school visit, contact lenore.appelhans @ 


I have several different presentations for various age groups, and can also adapt to your requirements, so just ask.


6th grade and up: Why Do Authors Write Books? Using THE MANIC PIXIE DREAM BOY IMPROVEMENT PROJECT as a basis, we discuss 5 main reasons authors write touching on theme, plot, intertexuality and more.


2nd grade and up: Idea to Execution. So you have an idea - now what do you do? Using CHICK-O-SAURUS REX as a basis, we discuss how to narrow your great idea into a book that expresses your interests and point-of-view. 

See Presenting Lenore for latest news.
