BOOK CRYSTAL TO SPEAK...
Make Your Next Event Unforgettable!
I am honored that you would like to have me be a part of your event. I love making space and time for these opportunities when they are a great fit.
In addition to being a bestselling author with book readings all around the world, I am a thought leader and influencer in the publishing space and regularly speak on the topics of:
Diversity in the Publishing Industry
Why We Need Black Books
Representation in Children's Literature
I have had really fun speaking opportunities, from reading to students at U.S. Embassies in West Africa to speaking at Amazon's Gender and Diversity Conference to teaching entrepreneurs and aspiring authors at business events and expos how to find publishing success.
For many of the children I read to, I'm the first black author they have ever met. I personally remember the very first time I met a black author. That was the moment I knew that I could also become one. That's why it's so important to introduce students to authors of diverse backgrounds. You can't be what you can't see!
