Elinor loves talking to kids (of all ages) in-person and via Skype. Visits can include everything from author readings and LEGO® activities, to writing workshops, Q&As, and off-the-wall chats.

Be sure to check out her Activities & Projects page, filled with fun things to do before and during her classroom or library visit!

You can view Elinor’s upcoming schedule on her Events page. If you’re interested in having her participate in an event, please feel free to contact her with questions and requests. She’ll be happy to send you a complete Author Visit Guide with answers to many of your logistical questions. Elinor currently lives in New England.


I could not recommend Elinor Teele highly enough if you are looking for an author visit for your school. I have a lot of author-hosting experience at this point, so believe me when I say that few have their presentation as well-planned and targeted as she did.

This was way more than “let me tell you about my book and my life as an author”—she taught a complete storytelling lesson to a roomful of giddy last-period-on-Friday 6th graders with the skill of a professional teacher.
