Skype Visits

Liesl is offering a limited number of Skype Q&As this fall to groups and classrooms reading Time Castaways. More dates for all books are being offered in January and February 2020. Click here to view available dates and times. Please email Katie at if you'd like to be notified when more Skype sessions become available.


Tips for a great Skype Q&A: 

  • Read the FAQs posted on Liesl's website

  • Brainstorm lots of question you'd like to ask and pick about 15 of your favorites. (We may get through more, but 15 is pretty average.)

  • Test your tech. I'm sorry that I cannot offer to do a test Skype beforehand. I recommend you do a test Skype with someone else outside of your school at the same time of day we'll be doing our Skype Q&A. If you have any problems with audio or video, here's some tech support from Skype:

  • Some schools block Skype. If that's the case in your school I'm happy to use Google Hangouts or FaceTime.

  • Make sure I have your Skype ID or email connected to your account.

  • We understand things sometimes come up, and you may be unable to make our call. Please let us know as soon as possible if you have to cancel so we can offer the session to another group.
