The Visit Kit--"Well come on in".

"Visiting.
It's just about our most favorite thing to do. And when we get to visit AND read a book, well that's just the icing on the cake!"
Dana & Harriet


TYPES OF VISITS:

1. School Visits.
A full-day visit with as many as six performances. Ages Pre-K through 6th grade. Author Dana Knox Wright and Illustrator Harriet Myrick perform a high energy and lively presentation of "A Pigeon Tale" using music, art and the written word. Their performances are tailored to captivate the specific age of the audience. For older students, the presentation includes an interactive session on how to write and illustrate a story. Some students will get microphone time to showcase their voiceover talents! There is plenty of laughter and imagination and feathers for everyone! The goal is not only to entertain, but to inspire students so they will be itching to imagine their own stories, and then to write them, paint them, and set them to music. A pre-sale of books is required for school visits.

HONORARIUM: $1,000. If visit requires an overnight stay, an additional $200 fee is required. If air travel is required, an additional fee is required.



2. Public Libraries and Other Single-Performance Events
Our performances are unique in that they are performed by both author and illustrator! Whether you are hosting an author event or you are looking for a presentation for your summer reading program, we are happy to tailor our performance to meet your needs. A typical performance will include a lively reading set to music and art, plus an interactive session where we will actually write a story together with our audience while Harriet Myrick illustrates in real time! Laughter, imagination, inspiration and of course feathers for everyone! That's how we roll! These kinds of events are half-day events and include a single performance and an author/illustrator book signing.

HONORARIUM: $600. If visit requires and overnight stay, an additional $250 fee is required. If air travel is required, an additional fee is required.

NOTE: When we make a date to visit you, we'll send you a copy of "A Pigeon Tale" for your library, along with our Information Kit, which includes everything you will need to promote your event, i.e. posters, pre-order forms, press releases and more!
