"It was an absolute delight to host Casey in our communities. We worked with Casey to coordinate a tour of ten libraries and schools and give presentations to 1,500 students over five days. Students, teachers, and libraries were over-the-moon with her engaging, informative, and cheeky presentations. Not only did she discuss her books but she actually inspired the students about storytelling and gave them a picture of what it looks like to build a story and edit. Some students brought books, and Casey made a point of speaking with each student who brought a book to sign. She is a superstar."

“Casey’s visit delighted and enriched the minds of our youngest students. Her relatable style engaged them in a discussion about her journey as a writer, and they were fascinated by examples of her work as a young child. Casey guided our students through the development of a story they could call their own. Her presentation was tailored to maximize audience participation, and students and teachers alike were enthusiastic about her visit from the far-off land of Canada!”
- Dawn A. Gillette, M.Ed., Assistant Head of School, Elk Hill Charlottesville School
