The International School of Stuttgart was pleased to host Mrs. Karen Wallace as our guest author for Book Week in March, 2012. During the three days Mrs. Wallace was with us, she presented her work to students in the Early Years through Middle Years grades. She prepared carefully and thoughtfully for our students, sending ahead all multimedia materials so that we could test the technology in advance. We found Mrs. Wallace to be an engaging, dynamic visitor who brought the magic of reading and writing books into our school.
Because Mrs. Wallace has published so many books in so many different genres, she is an ideal guest. She connects with all age groups and adapts her presentations flawlessly. Mrs. Wallace was an all round good sport as we put her through her paces at two separate campuses. She autographed hundreds of books, interacted beautifully with the staff, and took the time to make each workshop a special one. I give Mrs. Wallace my highest recommendation and know that other schools would cherish a visit with her.
