FREE Books for Students

Body: 

I'm going to include in my author appearance fee a FREE book for every student who would like one. After speaking at numerous schools, I'm seeing a pattern. Many students who would love a book can't afford it. Does this mean that poorer students don't have many books in their homes? Are the poorer students forced to read less simply due to dollars? If books = knowledge and knowledge = advancement, does this limit their success? So I've decided to try to help lick illiteracy in my own small way. A free book for interested students is a small price to pay to give eager minds a boost. If you know a school who may be interested in this, please have them contact me via this website's Contact page.

Author Appearances

Michael O'Rourke

Body: 

"Who the heck would have the moxie to get their hair cut up on a stage at the MI State Fair?" I thought to myself as I took a break from book signing. Then I found out it was $400-a-cut-celebrity-hairstylist Michael O'Rourke. And he was giving FREE haircuts to promote his new product line.
The wait was epic. A crowd of women clamoring to be selected.
His foot knocked a pile of things off the stage as he worked. Not a soul made a move to pick it up for him. I edged my way through the throng and picked everything up, placing it back neatly.
"You're next, my angel," he smiled.

Zerxes

A name simultaneously ancient and futuristic. Hmm... what kind of character would this be in a book? Want to send me some story inspiration?

Good Day PA AGAIN!

Body: 

So my inspiration and I were on Channel ABC 27's Good Day PA this afternoon. This session was much more calm than the last; no enormous over-propping on my part. Thank goodness for lessons learned! I got the feeling the show host almost liked this book better than the first one. She really laughed and enjoyed herself through the whole thing. She even told me to be sure to come back for my third book that's coming out this summer!

School Appearance Feedback

Body: 

I just received the nicest message from teacher Nicole Ross of Red Mill Elementary who teaches special education students. She told me that she submitted the following to her school newsletter: "Author Elizabeth Passo came to my room to read her book to my students. She was amazing! My students loved the story as well as the rhyming activities she did with them afterward. She was very accommodating and caring with them. She took time to sign books for them and chat before she left. It is well worth it to have her come in if you’re doing author studies with your class as she is local and discusses her process with the students." I had such a great time. Those kids were the sweetest!
