School & Library Visits: Testimonials

"Allison Wiest is an inspiration for young and old alike. Her presentation at Most Blessed Sacrament Catholic School was effortless with students learning about the writing process and what it is like to be an author. Allison's presentation is informative, educational, and interesting. She brought the writing process of Roaming Riley to life, and in turn inspired others to follow their dreams. I highly recommend Allison Wiest's well-written book series Roaming Riley and her educational presentation to local schools and libraries. She is an inspiration to all!"
