KA Holt’s Virtual Author Visits
I’m very excited to offer virtual author visits for this upside down school year. Please know that I realize how fluid every educational situation needs to be these days, and I am happy to discuss how to make these visits work best for you and your students. I completely understand that flexibility isn’t just important, it’s critical.
Because every district, school, and classroom have unique virtual, in-person, and hybrid models of education, and because there are also synchronous and asynchronous learning environments to manage, (WHEW!) I’ve attempted to create two distinct virtual visit offerings:
KA Holt Presents: Ask Me Anything!:
In these live 30- or 45-minute virtual Q&A sessions, KA Holt answers your students’ questions about her books, about writing, about anything they want.
KA Holt Presents: What Makes a Good Writer:
A more in-depth, seminar-like experience comprised of a series of on-demand videos that culminates in a live, virtual Q&A session

A note from Kari Anne about in-person author visits:
Visiting schools is one of the most fun and rewarding parts of my job. A little bit of magic happens every time I can connect with students and educators. Whether it’s presenting on stage or meeting one-on-one, there’s always an unplanned ah-ha! moment that delights or surprises or moves us all in ways we never could have imagined before that day.
It has been crushing for me to have to curtail these visits because of the pandemic. As soon as I can safely travel again, I will be overjoyed. However, until it’s safe for students, faculty, myself and my family, I look forward to finding and creating magic virtually.
