School/Library Visits

School and library visits are the best part of my job! I do both in-person and Skype author visits.

Skype visits run about 20-30 minutes, and are always free

I routinely do author visits in the Colorado Springs, Denver, and Pueblo area (my home base); contact me for pricing and details!

I'm happy to travel to your venue! I try to make my school visits as affordable as possible, so even those on a tight budget can enjoy a cool author visit.
Want me to come to your school or library? Send me an email at author@ftbradley.com for scheduling!

School Presentations

Upper Elementary & Middle-School (grades 3-8)

1. George Washington Presentation
to accompany Double Vision: Code Name 711

Did you know George Washington was America's first spy? As the founder of the Culper Ring, he helped overthrow the British during the Revolutionary War using clever spy tactics. During this fun, interactive presentation, we'll talk about George Washington's spy history, and little-known facts about the crucial role of his clandestine activities. There will be time for Q&A at the end of the session.

Length: 45 min-1 hour.

2. Workshop

Let’s plot a novel together! This dynamic workshop will have the class come up with a main character, a problem, and plot points that build toward a climax. I will guide students as we brainstorm ideas, encouraging them to avoid clichés, add a meaningful theme, and end the story with a satisfying resolution.

Length: 45 min-1 hour
