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 & Me, Babe & 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. ​
