|I enjoy speaking about my work and have been
invited to participate on panels and provide
keynote addresses at several venues such as:
PEN World Voices festival
Lincoln School Graduation Ceremony.
If you would like to arrange an author visit,
please contact the Penguin Speakers Bureau,
unless you are interested in scheduling a visit
during the "reduced fee" time period
(April 2014-December 2014), in which case you
may contact me directly.
|You may also email me directly through this page or find me on
facebook. Please note, however, that it often takes me a long time
to reply and that I have a strict spam guard that sometimes
mistakes real mail for spam. My emails are:
my last name followed by a period and then my first name at gmail
dot com; and my firstname followed by my middle initial "t" and my
last name (all one word, no spaces) at jhu dot edu. Thanks!
