Want me to visit your school, library, bookstore or other event?

 

Thank you for your interest. Here’s what I offer:

School visits are customized to suit your needs. I can visit for a single forty-five minute presentation, a writing workshop or a combination of these.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

 

Presentations:

The Back Story: An interactive forty-five minute presentation about the inspiration behind “The Adventures of Henry Whiskers,” and how an idea became a published book. Includes power-point tour to Henry’s world at Windsor Castle and time for Q&A. Grades 1 – 4.

What’s Your Story: A simple grab bag offers clues and prompts to countless stories just waiting to be told. Fostering literacy and creativity, this workshop will help inspire the imagination and storyteller in each child. Duration and content range from sixty minutes to two hours depending on grade. Best suited for grades 3 - 5.

 

Take little peek!

 

A Few Testimonials:

I am so excited that our school will be reading Henry Whiskers this spring for our One School, One Book program. After many hours of searching for that “just right” fit for our school, your work seemed to have exactly what we were looking for. I simply fell in love with the characters and how beautifully written they both were!
— Megan Hannigan, Kindergarten Teacher
When Gigi Priebe came for an author visit, the questions she asked students gave them a chance to apply what they’ve been learning in reading and writing. Best of all was the connection the students made with her, author to author.
— Sharon Rodko, School Librarian
Gigi Priebe is a gifted presenter who understands how to engage young students and get them excited about reading and writing. Her photo-filled slideshow invites students to look carefully, share their ideas, and make connections that enrich the experience for all of them. Her love of her topic is evident and her explanation of her journey as a writer is inspiring for all ages. Gigi is a great guest and we would love to have her back!
— Katie Nelson, First Grade Teacher
Gigi’s school presentations for her Henry Whiskers books are engaging and magical. Whether or not the children have already read the book she builds intrigue, and interest by making much of her talk about the children and their questions. And as with the excellent writing in her books, she motivates the reader’s interest and questions to maintain their attention and excitement in learning about the story and the writing and publishing process.
— Jan Hall, former book buyer and co-chair of the New England Children’s Booksellers Advisory Council
