More events to come!


I am always open to attending festivals, libraries, conferences, and/or schools. Because the cost in both time and money, I do ask that my travel expenses be paid, along with an honorarium where appropriate/budget allowed.

(I do not make exceptions to the cost of travel request unless it is a festival/conference I have sought out myself, or unless Stephanie Perkins will also be there because she is my favorite.) (I should probably say something that makes that last requirement sound like a joke, but it's not.)

I am happy to do school visits with presentations tailored to either high school or middle school audiences. For conferences or festivals, I'm open to workshops, panels, and keynote speeches. My powerpoint skills are beyond compare (by which I mean I finally figured out how to use gifs so I can have better joke punchlines). To quote my mother-in-law, "You're so good at public speaking!" By this I assume she meant she only fell asleep for a few minutes rather than the entirety of the one speech she's heard me give.

I care deeply about teen audiences, and am particularly inclined to say yes to events catered toward them.

If you would like to contact me about potentially doing an event, please email kierstenwhite@yahoo.com. (Emails about other things will not receive replies. I'm sorry. I still like you.)
