For Educators

Author Visits

As a former teacher, I love visiting schools and talking to young readers! Martí’s Song for Freedom is ideal for classrooms studying independence movements, abolition, poetry, or Hispanic Heritage. I’m happy to tailor my presentations to meet the specific needs of your students: I offer hands-on workshops as well as assembly-style presentations, and as a native bilingual in Spanish and English I can speak in either language (or both). I travel throughout the country. To see photos of past author visits, visit my blog. You can also download my author visit brochure and e-mail me at emma.otheguy@gmail.com for rates and availability.
