Readings and Presentations

In 2013 and 2014, through my work with Academic Coaching & Writing, I’ve been regularly giving webinars on topics for academic authors.  I also enjoy, however, giving live readings  from The Book of Sarah to small groups. If your group may be interested in setting up a reading, please email me at amybensonbrown@gmail.com.
