Nobody sleeps through my school presentations! Especially not boys, who particularly like my 17 bestselling adventure and extreme-sports novels.

Hey, Toronto: I’m coming your way the week of May 9, 2016. That means schools can book me for author presentations that week starting now!

To book me, go here:

For more information on my presentations for fourth graders through high-schoolers, here’s a flyer:

I’ll have a new middle-grade book out by then from Orca Currents (more info on that in the near future)


from my flyer:

Award-winning Pam Withers speaks about her best-selling “extreme sports” adventure books – which are particularly popular with boys. They’re riveting; so is their author as a speaker. What else would you expect of a journalist, editor and award-winning speaker who is also a former outdoor
guide? Even boys are impressed that she has kayaked the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. She speaks to more than 15,000 children per year across North America.



Her lively presentation for grades 4-9 includes:
• Short readings
•Tales of her own adventures
• Humorous anecdotes of how she researches her material
• The patience & persistence it takes to achieve success
• Special encouragement to boys
• The importance of rewriting & accepting criticism
• Tips on writing & getting published
• Extreme-sports video clips
“Our students are still talking about Pam’s visit! She’s a very engaging speaker. Her combination of book talks, personal experience, video clips, props, and audience participation, kept our large audience attentive and wanting more!”
Trudy Griebenow, Librarian, Sunnyside Elementary, Idaho Falls, ID.
“Extremely well received by our first through sixth-graders. Even the youngest were captivated by her real-life stories, readings, and video clips!”
Catherine Pavlik, Librarian, Hollywood Hill Elementary School, Woodinville, WA.
“Exciting, informative, fast-paced, and thoroughly engaging to our entire middle school!”
