Teacher Testimonial on My Book Talk–Terrific! 










“My middle school Novel Writing Workshop enjoyed a presentation by Deborah Baldwin, author of Bumbling Bea. The students had read the book and had many questions for the author. One boy asked, “How did you know how to write such ‘with it’ dialogue?” Baldwin’s answer delighted the students! “Since I am a teacher, I just listen to you guys and then I know how a middle schooler talks!” The students were interested in how long it took her to write the book, how she decided on the title, the conflicts, and how she got it published. Baldwin’s lively presentation, her ability to connect with middle schoolers, and her invaluable tips for the class of would-be authors made for an unforgettable visit with a REAL author!”

If you’d like for me to present a book talk on Bumbling Bea for you, here is what you receive:

  • an hour long presentation with a short power point
  • humorous and entertaining
  • teaching on Kabuki theatre
  • dramatic reading from my book
  • question/answer time
  • it can be tailored for your needs

Recently, I adapted Bumbling Bea into a play version for middle school students.  If you would like for me to present on play writing and how to adapt a book, this is a possibility as well.
