Events & School Visits

School Visits: 

signing books

Val Muller signing books for students of Harrison Road Elementary School. Thanks for being a great audience!

School Visits: I am able to do local/regional visits on a limited basis (in the Northern Virginia/Greater DC area). To schedule a school visit, or to discuss an out-of-area visit or event, please contact me via email.

Types of Visits: One of my favorite parts about being an author is interacting with my readers. I love visiting schools and talking about writing, pets, and mysteries. When I visit schools, I can give a reading; provide a presentation about the elements of the Corgi Capers series, including the professions and hobbies of the characters and the corgis (of course!); or lead a class-sized workshop on mystery writing. For details, please view these Author Presentation Options (Microsoft Word document).

 What do students have to say?

thank you
