Evans has found based on the expansiveness of technology anything is possible. Having launched online book events and spoken to classes and individuals world wide skies the limit. With stories from around the world and a global range of books to choose from many "student" can prepare with book readings prior to event and have questions that open up the world of children's book writing, illustration and story telling. Having traveled all over the globe and worked with such notable individuals as bell hooks, Holly Robinson Peete, Shaquille O'Neal, Taye Diggs, Idina Menzel, John Lewis, and many other incredible artists and individuals this gives listeners a rich experience.

Evans has given lectures from as young as preschool to college all the way to participants 100 years old and finds a way to connect with them all.

As time frames for organizations and schools vary greatly we ask organizers and individuals to have a plan of what they would like to discuss and we will shape a program that suits the needs. Expect short visits can be anywhere from 5-15 minutes for quick "hellos" and interviews, to 30 minute presentations that might cover a book or 2, to hour plus long presentations that might cover a range of topics, question and answer sessions. There are opportunities for individual touch base sessions with Evans. Understand that we receive many request so we ask organizers and individuals to be mindful of the ask and clear with what the vision is for an ask or an event.

budgets and honorariums vary greatly and we look to work with a wide range of organizations from schools to corporations. Much of what Shane does in presentations is inspire and share stories. People will ask "what to expect" and since every presentation is uniquely different because every audience is different, wether a 5 minute virtual "hello" or an hour plus long lecture, a motivational gathering, a commencement speech or a 1000 plus conference of people, Shane always delivers. With more than 40 books to his credit and many awards including the NAACP Image Award® and The Coretta Scott King Award Shane's motto of #BringTheseDreamsToLife resonates with audience world wide and all ages.
