Dan Gutman

Dan Gutman has visited more than one thousand schools in the last decade, so he must be doing something right.  For grades 1-3, he talks about his popular easy reader series, My Weird School.  For grades 3 and up, he gives a very inspirational, educational, and entertaining talk about his baseball card adventure series (Honus & MeBabe & Me, etc.), showing his rejection letters, preliminary cover designs, and rewritten manuscript. Both groups get a slide show.  The younger grades see “A Day in the Life of an Author,” and older grades learn how to write a story, using Dan’s series “Flashback Four” as an example.  For Kindergarten students, Dan reads his picture book Rappy the Raptor.  A splendid time is had by all!

Dan limits his in-person visits to schools in northern New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut. ​

Please see Dan’s website at  www.dangutman.com for details on how to request a “virtual visit.” People can also go to his Facebook fan page and follow him on Twitter and Instagram @dangutmanbooks.
