Programs

Sorry, as of January 1, 2013, my programs have been put on hold indefinitely.

Thank you for your interest in my work. I have given presentations at living history villages, museums; and have spoken to school groups, girl scout troops, and historical societies. My presentations can be altered as needed to meet the interests of your group. Contact me if you have any questions or if you want to schedule a program.
