The booking process:
1. Decide roughly what you want me to do. Do you have a program in mind? Read all about my possible programs. Are you thinking about extras like handouts or crafts? How long do you want me to be there outside of the program (for example if it’s an event do you want me to circulate awhile before the presentation and drum up interest?)? Also, do you want me for one program or more?
2. Contact me and set up a date. We both have to agree on a date and time that works for both of us.
3. Price depends on exactly where you want me to go and what you want me to do. Please contact me so we can discuss the details. For programs NOT through Humanities Iowa normally I charge $250 a program with 40 cents a mile mileage, but exact charges can depend on the answers to number 1 above. You can talk with me for suggestions for funding. Whether you book me through Humanities Iowa or directly, if I need to stay overnight that will also need to be provided.
