Popular author booking school visits in our region, April 1, 4, 5

Popular author booking school visits in our region April 1, 4-5, 2016!

Wow—incredible! An inspiration—absolutely gripping story everyone should hear.”
educator who attended the Charlotte S. Huck Children's Literature Festival, CA

Maryland author Marc Tyler Nobleman (Boys of Steel: The Creators of SupermanBill the Boy Wonder: The Secret Co-Creator of Batman) has been invited to speak at schools in more than half the 50 states, Tanzania, India, Chile, United Arab Emirate, Thailand, and Hong Kong. He is booking school visits in our region for April 1, 4-5, 2016

To say that [your] presentation was outstanding is almost an understatement. I’ve been the Head of Lower School for 30 years. All of the adults agreed that [you are] the best presenter we have ever had.”
—Dana Hahn, Head of Lower School, Wheeler School, Providence, RI


His talks are real-life detective stories with a strong social justice component: part motivational, part educational, and all entertaining for any age...even to those who couldn't care less about superheroes. His Batman book recently changed pop culture history. Students will be riveted during the talk and excited 
for months after about writing and research...guaranteed.

“You were AWESOME. I was near tears hearing the impression that you made on my son, who is in 3rd grade. For weeks after your presentation, I continued to hear how your message had resonated with many others.”
—Karin R. DeWispelaere, reading resource teacher, Laurel Ridge Elementary, Fairfax, VA
