School/Group Visits

I'd love to visit (virtually anyway)!  During the ongoing COVID 19 Pandemic (currently and into the 2020/2021 school year) I am offering visits through Skype or Zoom.  But, because all my visits are virtual, that means I can visit way, way, way beyond the borders of my home province of New Brunswick and all across North America.

Here's what I am offering:

The Little Ghost Who Was a Quilt -- This picture book is brand new -- just published Sept. 1, 2020!  It is beautifully illustrated by Byron Eggenschwiler.  It's the perfect book for leading up to Halloween, but it also has a year-round theme of learning to embrace and be proud of what makes each of us unique.

I offer a lively engaging reading of the story in a fun festive atmosphere with props, quilts, decorations, and Halloween fun. I'll talk a wee bit about how I got the idea for the book and of course answer questions. (If it's near Halloween, I'd also happily be a virtual special guest at a Halloween party -- just let me know and I'll wear a (non-scary) costume.)

Waiting Under Water -- For this middle grade book, I'll talk about the inspiration behind it,  and about some of the main themes in the story. (Or if a class has read the book, I'm happy to talk/focus on any aspect of it that you'd like) I'd also like to show a little of my personal sea glass collection and of course answer questions.

The Town That Drowned or All The Things We Leave Behind -- I'm happy to discuss either of these books and answer questions.

Modern Selvage Quilting or Sew a Modern Halloween -- I can give a small trunk show of some of the quilts/projects from the books, talk about my inspirations, and design/sewing methods.

Rates: As a professional writer and artist, I am guided by professional fee structures, but because all presentations are virtual at this time, current rates are reduced.  Sessions are each 50 minutes.  1 session is $150.00 CAD, 2 are $275 CAD, and 3 are $400 CAD.  To book a session, or if you have any questions, email Riel  at  Thank you!
