When Greg won the MeeGenius Author Challenge in spring 2012 for his children's book Chicken Boy: The Amazing Adventures of a Super Hero with Autism, he had no idea how it would change the trajectory of his writing career. The book won the People's Choice Award out of 400 entries at MeeGenius, a Gold winner in Children's Books for Readers Favorite Awards and has touched people around the world with its simple message. He has received numerous emails and photos from families from L.A. to Dallas to New York to London. It didn't take long before local schools contacted him and his school visits began to include speaking engagements in schools ranging from pre-K through 8th grade.
He has since done lectures, readings, and book signings in New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Texas, and Maine. He absolutely loves to visit schools and can tailor presentations depending on your needs.

Flyers and book order forms for students and faculty to order books prior to arrival can also be provided.
Authors work hard to prepare for visits long before they actually attend your school, so the fees vary based on location and amount of presentations. Please email Greg to discuss the sliding scale he has for multiple presentations at the same school or district.
