My books and events are aimed at 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th Grades. I live near Seattle, WA and I visit schools and libraries in Washington, Oregon, and Lower BC. If you’re further away, consider an online session via Skype!
My school sessions are interactive, engaging students in creative skits, discussions and art. We explore the process of creating a published book and discuss themes and settings from my stories. I like to coordinate any book sales through the nearest independent bookstore. I do not charge for 2018 events.
“Kevin John Scott’s middle school presentation had a library-full of students engaged in the serious business of rolling-on-the-floor belly laughing, all while learning the writing process and being inspired to tell their stories.
Kevin’s respect for our students’ creative abilities left us all feeling that our stories are worth sharing. His lively approach welcomed controlled outbursts of zany inspiration and made each student feel heard and empowered.”

“Kevin is a breath of fresh air! His author visits are truly a fantastic experience. 4th and 5th graders were enthralled, not only by the intriguing story line, amusing puns and humor from the story but by Mr. Scott’s ability to captivate the audience. A must-see author and must-purchase book for your library!”
Teacher Librarian, Washington Elementary, Tacoma, WA
“We loved having Kevin John Scott present to our students in grades 3-5. Teachers’ feedback is that Kevin is one of the most engaging and relevant speakers we’ve had. Students’ feedback includes: ‘loved it!’ and ‘that was really cool!’ Kevin kept everyone laughing and participating throughout – which is no small feat in an assembly of close to 300 students!”

Book Clubs, Adult readers and Writers
My themes translate to adult audiences: the immigrant experience, tolerance and intolerance, the writing process and more. I’m happy to tailor sessions to adult-oriented event and Book Clubs. These can be hands-on workshops or author talks.
