Children's Book Author

Mari Mancusi

​I am an experienced, accomplished school speaker and would love to come present to your students. I can do large presentations to the entire student body, classes by grade, or smaller groups -- even book club or writing club visits.

My presentations are perfect for students 2nd grade and up and are educational, motivational, and entertaining. I illustrate the importance having of a growth mindset and how short-term "failure" is an important first step to long-term success. I talk about rejection, revision, and not giving up. And the importance of shutting down "the haters" and not letting them squash your dreams. Using fun, pop-culture references, internet memes and personal pictures and stories from my own childhood, I draw the students in, making them laugh, but also think.
