I would love to present at your school or conference, in person or via Skype.  I can do a writing workshop with a small group of students, or an interactive, audience-participation-filled presentation to a large group of children or adults, with many other options in between.  Please email me at laurameressa (at) gmail.com to discuss what might be right for your group, or contact Julie Ann Hartman of The Booking Biz at julieann (at) thebookingbiz.com in order to book a presentation or workshop.

Laura’s fun-filled presentation was phenomenal. The students were actively engaged from start to finish. They loved the games, props, and of course the giant underwear! Our school can’t wait to have her visit again!

Laura was just incredible with our students. Her presentation was
engaging and interesting, full of movement, interactive writing, and
lots of laughter. Laura’s visit was truly memorable for students and teachers
alike, and we are thrilled we have had the opportunity to have her
inspire our students! We can’t wait for her next book!
