I tailor each of my programs to meet the needs of the audience, taking into account the size of the group, the ages of the participants, etc. Detailed descriptions of all of my workshops can be found on
Making Nonfiction Fun (all ages)
From circus science to candy around the globe to animals that seem to come back from the dead, Alicia writes nonfiction books on all kinds of topics. In this workshop, she will share some amazing-but-true stories from her 80+ nonfiction books. Kids love to hear about unbelievable medical practices from thousands of years ago or reportedly haunted cemeteries around the globe. Using captivating photos and actual props, Alicia will draw on the content of her various nonfiction titles and discuss the research and writing process from the idea phase all the way to the finished book.
This workshop can be done as a small classroom presentation or in an auditorium setting with an entire school. Over the course of this workshop, Alicia will cover the following topics (among others): constructing a bibliography, fact-checking, and finding the cool gems of information that make a book more exciting to readers.
