I am available for conference sessions and keynote speaking engagements in the United States and Canada. Arrangements can be made for bookings in other countries.
I’ve presented sessions for museums, among them the Smithsonian Institution and the Canadian War Museum, as well as senior/retirement groups and veterans organizations.
I'm also available for print, radio and television discussions regarding my books, and young readers and their connections with history and/or our veterans.
Dates, the length of sessions, fees, and travel arrangements can be discussed. You can find more information about these aspects on the "School and Library Visits" page of this website.
A power-point projector and pointer, a laptop computer, a screen, table, and glass of water. (I bring the presentation on a memory stick.)
Please contact me at lindagranfield at sympatico dot ca or via my Contact Me page on this website.
