PROGRAMS

 

Mr. Sullivan's presentations vary depending on the needs of the audience. In general, he discusses his books, how he does his research, his writing, and his background. For history curriculums, he can offer a good deal of information on World War II and how to obtain further information about the era. His programs are usually 45 to 60 minutes, including Q&A.

 

He has also spoken extensively and on a wide variety of topics to adult audiences, especially at conferences such as NCTE, ALA , and ALAN. He brings his expertise as a public librarian, a school librarian, and a writer to his presentations.

 

NUMBER OF PRESENTATIONS PER DAY AND GROUP SIZE

 

Mr. Sullivan can do up to three presentations per day to any size audience. For school visits, please group students by grade levels. When more than one grade level makes up the audience, please group grade levels as close in age as possible. 

 

EQUIPMENT NEEDED

 

For large audiences, please provide a microphone. Also have the following items handy for presentations to any size audience: drinking water, chair and table, standing easel with pad and marking pens.

 

HONORARIUM

 

This should be presented to him at the end of the last session on the last day of the visit.  Generally speaking, his honorarium is $1,000 a day, plus expenses. 

The honorarium listed is the per-day honorarium (you would also be responsible for their travel expenses, hotel and meals). Sometimes, the fee may be negotiable depending on what you'd like him to do and where you're located in relation to where he lives, and whether he plans to do research in your area, etc.

 

For further information, especially about the expenses (travel, hotel, and meals), click the "Arrange An Appearance" button and see "General Information on the Cost of an Author Appearance" as well as the 'Honorariums' section near the bottom of "How to Plan an Author Appearance."
