Anatomy of an Author Visit with Aaron Zenz

Aaron Zenz

Travis: A successful author visit is a beautiful thing, isn’t it?

When author/illustrator Aaron Zenz visited my school I interviewed himĀ about how he approaches a visit with kids. We talk about all sorts of stuff – how he built his presentation, how it’s evolved, and even how he handles the unexpected. I think my favorite part is that we were able to include clips from when Aaron was presenting to students.
