"Karen was great to work with before and during her program. “Persuade, Don’t Preach” was well-attended at our library and patrons left having learned something new. The discussion portion at the end probably would’ve gone on all night if we didn’t have to close! I look forward to bringing Karen back in the future. " 

K.S., Programming Librarian, Franklin Twp Library
