Katie has taught elementary, middle, high-school, and college students. She loves meeting new people and talking about writing and books. An author visit with Katie might include a Skype chat with a library book club, trying on Tanzanian clothes and practicing Swahili with younger readers, a slide show depicting the Tanzanian story-behind-the-story for a middle school audience, or an interactive lecture for university students on the craft of writing memoir or young-adult fiction.  To contact Katie about organizing an event for your group or organization, please send an email.
