Best-Selling Author Wendy S. Swore is offering free school presentations as part of her tour for her new book, The Wish And The Peacock (2/4/2020).
Wendy presents to a combined audience of 3rd-8th grade. With light-hearted stories and audience participation, Wendy (who had a blood tumor on her face in Elementary School) shares how it only takes ONE minute of courage, ONE kind word, and ONE person to make a difference in someone's life-- with emphasis on how everyone has a story to tell. She teaches 5 fast and easy steps that will help students write their own story adventures. Her message will empower students to develop their own unique stories and learn that each person is powerful and magnificent just the way they are! Presentation is just 40-45 minutes long.
Would your school be interested in this free author presentation opportunity?
Please send a message right away if your school would like to host Wendy.
*If she is unable to incorporate your school as part of her tour, she'd be happy to SKYPE with your school and/or answer any questions your students might have.
Please encourage your child to write to Wendy! You can use the form on this website for kids to communicate with Wendy and she will write them back!
Once you use the form on this website for your initial message, Wendy will answer you via email for easy back and forth communication.
