Author Rosanne ParryA Brand New Book!

IMG_0381Earlier this month at the bookshop we had ski- in customers in what passes for a blizzard in Portland. I’ve loved working at Annie Blooms Bookstore for the past year, so I was particularly honored to celebrate my book birthday there. It was  a grand party and now there are signed copies of my book right up front. I’ve also signed books at Powells, Green Bean Books and A Children’s Place so if those are closer to where you live, please visit them. Or the library! Multnomah and Washington county libraries both have my books in circulation.

On February 24th I will be doing Skype visits all around the world. It’s a wonderful celebration of books and a great way to get a free virtual author visit. I have a few spots left in my schedule. Please get in touch if you’d like to join the fun.

Author Visits for your students

HiRes Cover TIDEI am in the midst of lining up school visits for the spring and fall of 2016. I love author visits! My training is in education and I love getting back in the classroom and helping kids fall in love with books and the writing process. I do a wide variety of programing for kids, teens, and adults with events as short as an hour long assembly all the way through a week long Writer-in-Residence program. Dates are filling up so if you would like to have a terrific experience with writing in your school please contact me.

Oregon Battle of the Books!

Written in Stone will be an OBOB book for 6th to 8th graders for the 2015-16 school year. I love OBOB! My own kids did it for years and adored it. It’s such fun to see the energy and excitement of a sport around an academic activity. I’m very excited to do as many school visits asOBOB_small possible for OBOB schools next year and I’m starting to put together my school visit calendar. I’ll be clustering my school visits in October and the first half of November and then another cluster of school visits in March, April, and May.  I’d love to come to your school. More information on the visits here. If you’re ready to talk about the particulars, please use the contact me button or email me at rosanne@rosanneparry.com.
