Book a Reading

Please contact me if you are interested in a school reading! My rates for a school visit are very reasonable (enough to cover my basic expenses) and I would love to come visit your school. I do ask that the school advertise my visit at least one week to two weeks prior to the reading and send a flyer home with the children. We offer a discount on books ordered before the day of the reading. Here is a sample of the flyer we can provide the school. A Penelope banner and posters are also available to put around the school and a copy of the book will be
before the reading. I am available for book signings after the reading(s).

Melissa Northway has written a very engaging book in Penelope the Purple Pirate.  Melissa came dressed as a pirate and equipped with pirate gear.  The students were so engaged in the story telling and absolutely loved Penelope’s adventures.  We will definitely have her back again. I would highly recommend Penelope!

Here’s to a pirate adventure on the high seas!

Vista Verde Elementary School invited me to be their Featured Author for the lower grades during Dr. Seuss Read Across America Week. The children wore purple in honor of Penelope’s favorite color.
