Students should read some of my books before the program and prepare questions they would like to ask me. Questions can be about writing and the experiences that led to me becoming a writer or about the science and nature topics presented in the books. To make sure the conversation will be most effective for hitting curriculum standards and inspiring the students, teachers may want to review questions before the program.
