I enjoy speaking about my work and have been
invited to participate on panels and provide
keynote addresses at several venues such as:

NERA conference
RICTE conference
RILA conference
Harvard University
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!
