Have Gregory Visit YOUr school

When Gregory won the MeeGenius Author Challenge in spring 2012 for his children's book Chicken Boy: The Amazing Adventures of a Super Hero with Autism, he had no idea how it would change the trajectory of his writing career. The book won the People's Choice Award out of 400 entries at MeeGenius, a Gold winner in Children's Books for Readers Favorite Awards and has touched people around the world with its simple message. He has received numerous emails and photos from families from L.A. to Dallas to New York to London. It didn't take long before local schools contacted him and his school visits began to include speaking engagements in schools ranging from pre-K through 8th grade. While the book is for younger children, the message to make one's self aware of others and their differences is ageless.
He has since done lectures, readings, and book signings in New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Texas, and Maine. He absolutely loves to visit schools and to be a small part in the awareness, acceptance and understanding of autism! (And he even discusses his background as a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle too!)

He can tailor presentations depending on your needs.

* Readings & Q&A on the books and/or autism
* Leading assembly on writing and performing
* Discussions on setting goals & following ones dream
* Guest of honor for school autism walks

Let's work out together what you need!

Flyers and book order forms for students and faculty to order books prior to arrival can also be provided. 


Authors work hard to prepare for visits long before they actually attend your school, so the fees vary based on location and amount of presentations. Please email Gregory to discuss the sliding scale he has for multiple presentations at the same school or district.
