Kudos from Educators & Students

“Peter is a model of a teacher for all people, in either our state or anywhere else.” --Patrick Leahy, United States Senate

"Most of my students had never heard of Peter or his book, but after with Peter, the buzz in the ninth grade was all about this cool guy who wrote an intriguing story. Peter quickly created a sense of community among his audience by involving them in physical theatrics, inviting them to cold read excerpts and speaking from the heart...Peter's enthusiasm was contagious. The next day students came into the library hoping to buy or borrow the book...Don't hesitate. Don't wait. Read Write Naked. Invite Peter Gould to your school." --Vicky Palmer, Librarian, U32

"Peter brought my students along on a personal journey from organic farmer to itinerant dramatist to novelist to teacher...along the way, Peter taught an array of concrete and widely applicable lessons in effective storytelling, making these tangible and memorable by involving everyone in a fun and well-received physical comedy routine." --Matthew Dickstein, English Dept. Chair, Hazen High School

"...possibly the best author visit I've ever had. He was funny, energetic, and definitely, not boring." --Liza, Hazen High School
