School & Library Visits: Now Reopening

Now that spring is here and the snow has finally melted, I am reopening my school & library visits. If you would like me to visit your school or library (here in Lithuania), please contact me and we can arrange a date. The presentation typically lasts for about one hour, but we can adjust this to your specific needs. I give a short introduction to my novel, Guardian of Giria, followed by a presentation on the wildlife featured in the book. The presentation appeals to kids of all ages but is particularly suited to those aged between 10 and 16.

Please note that the entire presentation is in English.

For inspiration, here are links to some of the presentations I gave last year.

    1. Thanks, Luke! I didn’t realise you taught literature. If you’d like a free copy of Guardian of Giria for your school, either for the library or to use in classes, just fill in this form and I’ll send one on. The offer is technically confined to Ireland and Lithuania, but since you seem to be as crazy about wildlife as I am, I’d be happy to make an exception! 😀

      1. This is a very kind and generous offer which I’ll have to take you up on June. We encourage lots of reading for pleasure so I know a few people I can recommend this to. I also run a wildlife club so will have to pass it around everyone in that.

      2. Sorry June. I should probably add my name as my school don’t know me as the thought badger funnily enough:
        If you add Luke O’Brien to the address it will get directly to me and I can start lending it out to students who I know it would appeal to. Once It’s done the rounds, I will intend to add to the library to allow other students to discover it.

      3. Maybe I should put “Luke O’Brien – aka The Thought Badger” to see if it elicits any comments from your colleagues! 😉
