Virtual Visits

Cyber Visits Connect Authors To Students To BooksBring author Cynthia Leitich Smith to your audience via a virtual chat. She's open to speaking to kids, college students, children's-YA book creators, and youth literature educators and professionals of all stripes.

Cynthia is a great fit for such events because of her extensive online presence in support of not only her own books but children's-YA literature as a whole.

Cost & Duration

The cost is $300 for a half hour to anhour. Please consider the attention span of the target audience. Very young readers may not be able to focus as long as older ones.


Cynthia will send signed copies of at least two of her children's-YA books for study prior to the visit, to be added to a classroom / school / public library, to be offered as giveaways or any other use that appeals to the event planner.

Cynthia will also send up to 100 signed bookmarks to be distributed to attendees.
