Children’s Book Events / Book Signings / Workshops

I love doing events to show kids what I do! I gear my presentations according to each particular age group. I usually read a few of my books, discuss topics I think kids (and teachers) would enjoy, then open it up for questions.

Some topics might include:

  • What I did as a kid (art/writing samples).
  • My process (sketches/manuscripts/dummies and final art).
  • How I get my ideas.
  • What is inspiration?
  • What do you need to tell a story?
  • How can kids create their own stories.

I am available to do art projects with the kids. I have many workshop ideas to choose from. Feel free to email me if you’d like to see a complete list of ideas and various craft projects that would tie into my books.

I am also available to sign books at the end of the presentation. For further questions or information feel free to contact me at: mariacarluccio@verizon.net
