Visits and Events

Brother Hugo Book LaunchA teacher and experienced speaker as well as a writer, Katy is available to speak to groups of all ages —
from pre-K children to university students and adults.

She fits her presentations to the interests and needs of her audiences and offers interactive storytimes designed to engage the youngest listeners. She also gives talks for more mature audiences on a variety of topics, including writing for children; the “History of the Book”; and the making of a medieval manuscript.  Each talk or storytime, whether for children or adults, involves activities for the audience and time for questions at the end.

If you are interested in having Katy meet with your school or group, please book your visit by writing to:
