[back to top]

Leah is available to read from, speak about, and sign copies of Out Front the Following Sea, or to partake in other types of events, workshops, classrooms, or speaking engagements. She can Zoom, Skype, or Google Meet (free) for any virtual discussion. She can read or sign (free) in-person for any interested venue within 250 miles of Boulder, Colorado, or she’ll venture outside those limits if a travel stipend is offered. She’ll also read or sign (free) in-person for events that are near other planned events outside stated limits, as well, so check the events calendar to see if there’s an event happening close to you where your event can piggyback! Leah can sign books at in-person events (optional), and she can sign bookplates for U.S. virtual events (optional).
