For over two decades I have been hosting author visits, and Bruce Hale’s is first rate! Students agree. The consensus is that he’s the best, and the most used word to describe him was “fun”! Bruce’s dynamic Story Power presentation was the most successful workshop in creative writing for children that I have ever participated in. His visit has inspired even my most reluctant writers to begin creating their own stories.

What do you want in an author visit?
Someone who delivers content relevant to your students and curriculum. Someone entertaining who knows how to talk to kids. That’s what I can provide you. As a professional speaker and member of the National Speakers Association (the premier organization for professional speakers), I’m all about making your visit day a success — and a fun one!
As the author of over 40 books for young readers, I’ve traveled nationally and internationally, speaking at schools, libraries, and conferences. And as an actor and storyteller, I know how to keep audiences engaged.

Interested in a Skype School Visit? Let us know! The name of the game is fun engagement with kids, in whatever format.
Entertaining for Grownups, too!
I also enjoy speaking with educators’ groups, writers’ groups, and at family literacy nights — as well as teaching business storytelling to individuals and companies. For information on Business Storytelling visit my brucetalks.com site. For other presentations, please contact me with your specific group’s or conference’s needs to see if one of my programs might be a good fit.
