In school presentations, Kevin explores the process of creating a published book and discusses themes and settings from his stories. School sessions are interactive, engaging students in creative skits, discussion and art. He introduces the Frederik Sandwich stories and themes, and reads brief highlights. He keeps groups engaged through use of visual aids, quizzes, dramatization, and discussions to keep groups highly engaged.
Kevin’s books are fun adventures with some serious underlying themes. He explores the challenges faced by first- and second-generation immigrants, and how it feels to be an outsider. He talks about where he finds ideas, how he builds them into stories, and he offers the students a recipe they can follow to create stories and books of their own.
Kevin also works with adult audiences, discussing the writing process, the immigrant experience, tolerance and intolerance, and more. He is happy to tailor sessions to any group’s specific needs.
