Matt Chandler

He has written more than 25 non-fiction books for Capstone Press, and his book, "Side-by-Side Baseball Stars: Comparing Pro Baseball's Greatest Players" was named the 2015 Outstanding Young Adult Book by the American Society of Journalists and Authors (ASJA). Matt lives in New York with his wife Amber and his children Zoey and Oliver.

This author is available for in-person, Skype, and Google Hangout visits. Learn more!

My visits cover K-8, are very high-energy, and interactive. The students are involved, lots of Q&A time, and we cover everything from the writing process, what it is like to be an author, to stories from the books, themselves. I customize the presentation for the different grade levels so it is age-appropriate, and also work with the school's staff in advance to see what they want covered and really customize the experience.

For a typical school, I do a one- to two-day visit, depending on its budget. I had two visits last year, that were for four days and included writing workshops. On average, my indvidual presentations are between forty-five minutes to one hour, depending on the school.
