“Mrs. Fitzgerald visited two elementary schools during her author visit in town. At one school she met with each grade level individually in a smaller setting. At the other school, she met with the entire student body in the gymnasium. In both settings, her passion for her craft, writing and illustrating picture books, was engaging and motivating to the students in her audience. As a former elementary school teacher, she does an excellent job of adapting her interactive presentation, both to the setting and to the age of the audience. Great author visit from a personable and professional children’s author!”

“Mrs. Fitzgerald made an engaging and inspiring presentation to four classes of first grade students. Mrs. Fitzgerald captured the interest of our young writers, portraying both her craft of writing and illustrating books, as well as her love of the process. She passionately took students through the steps of publishing her books, from dreaming up ideas and note-taking to revising drafts of texts and artwork for the illustrations. As a former elementary school teacher, she did an outstanding job of helping students make connections between their experiences as writers in the classroom and her life as a published author. It was a memorable experience for both the students and their teachers!”
