FIND OUT WHAT
The kids absolutely loved hearing Kyle speak! He was engaging, funny, and motivational. After he spoke to the kids on Friday. many of them had finished his book, The Sparks, by the following Monday. He did an absolutely fabulous job of motivating some of our reluctant readers into reading for their own pleasure. This is no small feat.
“Kyle Prue captivated an audience of 10th, 11th, and 12th graders at Eisenhower High School. He inspired readers and writers of all levels with an engaging, relevant, and relatable presentation. Students were enthralled with Kyle’s anecdotes and personal experiences with reading and writing on his journey to becoming an award winning, published author. Days later, students are still talking about feeling inspired to write after listening to Kyle speak. What a great way to start off our school year! I would highly recommend Kyle Prue’s presentation as it is meaningful, fresh, and engaging–just what our students need!”
“Although the kids loved meeting all the YA authors at the Riverdale Reading Festival, Kyle was no doubt the most popular. The kids were lined up to get their books signed and to get photos with Kyle. I have just finished reading The Sparks and I couldn’t put it down. I have recommended it for all of our branches.”
Inspiring is how I would describe Kyle’s presentation to our students. The tales of his journey from a first grader completing his daily journaling to a published author had the students mesmerized. His message was one of determination, perseverance and resilience. His friendly and honest approach helped our students connect with him. It was one of the best assemblies we have had for our students. Kyle inspired our students to become writers and readers!
“Kyle spoke at Trombly Elementary School in Grosse Pointe, Michigan, to the rapt attention of an audience of 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders. Although The Sparks is aimed at a slightly older reader, Kyle’s engaging manner kept the children interested for an hour. He sheds bright light on his experiences as a young writer pursuing his dream, and inspires children to pursue their own passions. Highly recommended.”
“Kyle will NEVER begin to fathom the depth to which he touched some of our most at risk students. I am forever grateful. I have pictures of the kids devouring the book and they rated it a hands down 10 stars. The best part was Kyle stopped by unannounced today to sign a poster of his characters and several of our students were making t-shirts of his book cover! Let me emphasize the fact that these are STUDENTS IN INTENSIVE HELP FOR LANGUAGE ARTS AND STRUGGLING RELUCTANT READERS. This event was a BREAKTHROUGH IN A HUGE WAY!”
