loves to attend school book fairs!
Dawn is pleased to attend school book fairs to sign copies of her
book Harriet's Horrible Hair Day.
Of course, sometimes travel is expensive
... so there are a few things to consider.
Dawn is happy to visit local school book fairs at no cost. Local
visits include most of Massachusetts and parts of Rhode Island.
2. If the book fair location
is outside the local area, there is a fee for the cost of travel.
If air travel is required, the school is responsible for all travel
fees as well as providing overnight lodging.
Combine an author
visit with your book fair!
Invite Dawn to your school to do an author visit at the same time
you are holding your book fair. The children will learn how Harriet's
Horrible Hair Day evolved from an idea into a picture book.

Here are what teachers
and facilitators say:
Thank you for sharing your writing experiences with our students.
Everyone was so excited about your visit! I spoke with several of
the teachers afterward, and they felt your book talk was extremely
beneficial and educational for the students -- especially to learn
"first hand" how difficult it can be to write, illustrate,
publish a book with all the time and effort involved.

The students are thoroughly enjoying
your book! I used it as my main book for the first week of school.
We did interactive writing about it, made a list of all the words
you used instead of using "said" all the time. It's a favorite
choice at independent reading time!

Our fifth-grade students loved hearing
you talk about being an author. It's especially interesting to learn
what happens "behind the scenes" of having a book published.
The children are talking about writing during the summer. What
a great way to end our school year!
