Alicia Z. Klepeis

From jellybeans to strange snakes, Alicia Klepeis loves to research fun and out-of-the-ordinary topics that make nonfiction exciting for readers. Alicia Klepeis began her career at the National Geographic Society. Alicia’s travels have taken her from Singapore to Sydney to Sumbawa. Everywhere she goes she samples the local ice cream, gum, and candy options. Alicia has written several books and magazine articles for many markets, and is currently working on several nonfiction projects on international food, cool inventions, and world cultures. She lives with her family in upstate New York.

I do lots of school visits for Grades K-8.
My most popular presentation is, Making Nonfiction Fun, but, I have several different presentations, including some on STEM and STEAM, Writing Biographies, and, Using Primary Sources. Additionally, I do a whole presentation on, Food From Around the World, in conjunction with my Capstone title, The World's Strangest Foods.

Presentations are one half-hour to forty-five minutes in duration for grades K-2, and forty-five minutes to one hour for grades 3 and up

Fee varies by location.
Local visits: $450 for a half-day, $700 for a full day.
In the NYC area: $950 for a full day (a maximum of four separate presentations).
