Conferences & Other Events



I love sharing my experiences as a scientist, a naturalist, and a writer with audiences of all ages. Since my first book was published in 2007, I’ve presented in a variety of settings, including national conferences, regional events, literacy festivals, non-profit organizations and more. Here is a partial list of venues:

  • National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) annual conference
  • National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) annual conference
  • American Association of School Librarians (AASL) annual conference
  • Massachusetts Environmental Education Society (MEES) annual conference
  • New England Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators (Faculty)
  • Highlights Foundation Writing About Science Retreat (Faculty)
  • Rhode Island Science Teachers Association (Keynote)
  • USA Science & Engineering Festival
  • PEN World Voices Festival
  • Hudson Children’s Book Festival
  • MassAudubon

The topics I’ve covered are diverse, including citizen science as a tool for empowering students, how to write a nonfiction book proposal, and a whole lot in between.  I’d be happy to talk with you about a keynote, workshop, or in-residence program to suit your needs. Contact me by email to get the conversation started.
