Meet Author Thomas Sarc

Treat your students to an unforgettable school or library visit with children's author and award winning poet Thomas Sarc!



Mr. Sarc's school and library programs, generally for Kindergarten to 4th Grade, touch on story development, research techniques and/or any combination of these topics as he takes students through several of his titles including My Dog's World and Dusty's Bad Hair Day...from idea to publication.

This may sound too advanced for those grade levels BUT each program is tailored to the grade and the author is sensitive to the students reactions - tailoring his presentation to suit the situation.

Mr. sarc uses copies of his books, photos, and hand-outs .  He discusses the characters/pets in his books and how he came up with the ideas for his books, etc.

He encourages an interactive presentation - where students are asked to present their questions, comments, suggestions, ideas, etc.


The approximate time for each session is 45-60 minutes including questions and answers.  All students will receive bookmarks and/or photos of book characters!
