Monique Fields is available for school and library visits. She speaks eloquently about race, biracial children, and interracial marriage.

Depending on the age of the students, I share my story and my writing journey, read Honeysmoke, guide students in thinking about their own color words, and answer questions. These sessions typically run for 30-45 minutes. For younger students, the program is more simplified and runs 20-30 minutes. For older students, I can discuss the importance of writing, work through a writing prompt, and discuss careers in the book industry. For one fifth-grade class, I was once was peppered with questions and comments about race. The students wanted to share their stories about race. I can lead a discussion like that one as well. I usually work with Skype or Zoom, though I have had some experience with Google Meet.

Please reach out Monique for more information for interviews or to learn more about her paid school and library visits.
