Teachers, Librarians and Community

I am available for online and in-person school visits, library visits, and community events. For information on setting up an Author Visit, feel free to email me at jessicalawsonbooks@gmail.com .

I have a standard classroom talk that includes what an author does, elements of a story, and a group story creation activity for students. Presentations will be catered to your needs and interactive sessions can incorporate any/all of the following:

  • the writing and publishing process
  • developing characters, plot, and tension in fiction
  • researching/utilizing historical elements in fiction
  • elements of a fictional retelling and/or origin story
  • Question/Answer Session

The Becky Thatcher Curriculum Guide works with The Actual & Truthful Adventures of Becky Thatcher as a standalone book and as a complement to Mark Twain's classics The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
