Annabeth and Connor's Awesome Author Show

Annabeth & Connor combine a raucous performance of their book, Shivers!, with improv, a creative writing lesson, and a healthy dose of screaming. Kids are given the chance to come up with brand new characters and see their ideas come to life right before their eyes. The mix of mind-blowing comedy is capped off with a question and answer session.

Our kids were dazzled by your wonderful presentation. I have heard from so many parents who mentioned that “Shivers” was all they talked about on the way home. You made such a positive impact on our students!
— Cathy Sprague, Librarian, Mountain Lakes, NJ
I can’t tell you how much your visit meant to my students, my associate teacher and me...we are all so inspired. The kids can’t stop talking about the presentation. And they all created their own wonderfully wacky characters during writing time and dreamed up problems that these strange, special creatures might encounter!
— Lily Howard, Teacher, Pasadena, CA
