Inspiring Future Scientists with Interactive Educational Presentations 

Motivational & Author Speaking Events

Linda's motivational and author speaking events are an unforgettable science adventure designed for children ages 5 through 12, and events are appropriate for all audiences.

Events are available for public schools, libraries, and civic groups, and are generally scheduled in 2 to 4 hour increments. A full day option is available for public schools utilizing an encore schedule. Events can be structured with groups rotating through a central location or with Linda visiting specific classrooms or areas. Title I schools receive priority event booking and a donated copy of Linda and the Mysterious Footprints for the school library.


Event hosts have the option to request Linda bring her box turtle, Darwin, and/or a Larva Library viewing tank to the event. In small group settings, hosts can opt to allow children to pet Darwin's shell or hold a Larva Library mealworm during the presentation. Attendees must wash their hands after interacting with Darwin and/or the mealworms. In large group settings, Darwin and the mealworms are available for viewing only. For additional information or to book a speaking event, please email
