If you would like me to visit your school or library, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please see my Presentations page for topics and descriptions of my interactive, multimedia programs.
Coordinating with other schools and libraries in the area is a good way to share expenses. You can also piggy-back on other presentations that I’m making nearby; please see my upcoming Appearances, below. I also make Skype visits!
