"What a gift it's been to have you with us at Stafford this week! Students and teachers alike raved about your presentations in the auditorium. A number of teachers told me how much they appreciated the fact that your presentations seemed to be tailored to each audience. You have a unique ability to connect with students from so many backgrounds. The students who attended your writing workshops came away with a new energy and enthusiasm for poetry." —Kate Messner, Former English Department Chair, Stafford Middle School, Plattsburg, NY, Now Acclaimed Children's Book Author

If you'd like Kwame to do a school visit, here's what he has to say about that...
An author visit to your school can be rewarding and informative for students, teachers, and parents. My school visits consist of some combination of reading from my books, poetry performance, creative writing discussion and workshop, dancing, laughing, and I promise NO SINGING!

An author visit also imparts the love of reading and writing to students. For me, a school visit is exciting because I get to meet the teachers and the students who read my books (and those who haven't, but who will after I WOW them).

To the question, “Mr. Alexander, how much do you charge to come and wow our students,” I have the following answer: “Enough to pay for my 4 year old’s Montessori tuition and a new pair of shoes every three years—I wear a SIZE 15.”

“Every teacher has come to the media center today to rave, absolutely RAVE about your poetry sessions and about you! We have never seen the students relate so well and respond so completely to anyone! You have inspired us. Truly, you were a gift to our students and staff!!!” —Kathy Allen, Librarian and Media Director Oscar Smith High School, Chesapeake, VA
