- Events & Conventions
- Online, Podcasts, Etc.
I love speaking to schools and classrooms either in person or via Skype.
Schools and other groups with children:
Lana will meet with up to three groups in a day for up to 60 minutes each with at least a 15-minute private break between sessions. Lana’s standard presentation includes an introduction, an author reading, and a Q&A session. But she is also excited to work with you to create a presentation that will best meet your needs.
She can also do large group presentations on the following:
Technology and The Two Englishes
60 or 90 minutes
Cellphones and the internet have brought the Written and Spoken English languages together in a way never before seen—and that’s not a bad thing. In addition to discussing past technology’s influence on English, Lana explains how each of us adapts the rules of Written English to imbue the tone and personality of Spoken English through the magical communication devices we carry with us everywhere.
Adult and mixed-age groups:
Lana will gladly come for a reading and a short presentation on her book, pursuing publication, and/or the writing process followed by a Q&A session. She is also happy to have a discussion on the intersection of technology and youth outreach for groups of educators and librarians.
