Speaking to Your Group

I would love to come speak to your group. As you can see from my events page, I am on the go across North Georgia. Please help me keep traveling Georgia speaking about North Georgia history. Consider offering an expense fee to cover my transportation when I come to your event.

If your event is outside of Metro Atlanta, consider applying for a Literary Events Grant of Georgia that will pay writers a fee to come to your event, at no cost to you. I am on the Georgia Writers Registry (GWR) . Just fill out a short application on line to fund my speaking. Apply for LEGG.

Let’s keep regional history alive.
My very best to you,

Lisa M. Russell
