SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS

If you're interested in having me speak at your organization, please get in touch at mckenna.shannon@gmail.com.

I’ve spoken at the FDR Presidential Library and Museum, the Roosevelt House Public Policy Institute at Hunter College, the National WWII Museum, and many other venues, including bookstores, libraries, historic sites, and literary festivals.

Presentation Topics:

The First Lady of World War II - Eleanor Roosevelt and her groundbreaking journey to the Pacific Theater during World War II, plus how my passion for travel led to writing the book.

Novel Destinations and Literary Travel - a fun and informative journey through literary history, featuring sites in the U.S. and abroad. I reveal little-known literary facts, share some of my travel adventures, and offer ideas for those looking to take to the road. Includes a slide show with images of author houses, museums, hotels, and other literary landmarks.

• Advice on general travel and traveling full-time, which I did for seven years (first in an RV across the U.S. and then backpacking around the globe).

• The writing journey: partnering with another author (as I did for my first two books), transitioning from short-form to long-form narrative nonfiction, and writing and research advice.

 

I'm also happy to work with you on crafting the perfect presentation tailored to your audience.
