Author Visits

If your students like imaginative stories, then consider a visit from Kirsti Call to your school. Kirsti shows students (kindergarten through eighth grade) how to bring their writing to life through interactive games and activities. From finding ideas, to creating their own story and revising, Kirsti helps students learn about the process of publication. She also shows drafts, and notes for her own books. She likes working closely with students and answering their questions. Your strongest writers will go beyond themselves, and your less skilled students will surprise you and themselves with what they will accomplish.

"Last week all students enjoyed a wonderful presentation from Kirsti Call, with a published children’s book titled The Raindrop Who Couldn’t Fall. Her interactive presentation encouraged the children to be innovative when in the writing process. The theme of the book fit nicely with our curriculum… to remain positive and persistent when working towards achieving personal goals."
Dr. Mal Forsman, Principal of Bancroft Elementary School
