2018 Author Events & Signings (*tickets required)


"Kathryn Craft brought the entire room of a hundred and fifty people to laughter and to tears. Yet her keynote speech was too well composed to call it a roller coaster ride. It was more a case of Kathryn taking us each by the hand and leading us on a walk through her life, allowing us to feel the giddy highs and the desperate lows, made more impactful still by her lyrical delivery. At the end, she left us with a great gift—a resounding sense of hope."
—Hilary Hauck | President | Pennwriters Inc.

"When Kathryn spoke at our AAUW Authors' Luncheon in 2014, she was both engaged and engaging. We couldn't wait to hear more about her story. We enjoyed her so much that we have invited her to be part of our 2015 Luncheon.  Kathryn always delights and entertains."
—Karen Hickey, Authors' Luncheon Co-Chair
American Association of University Women, Easton PA Branch
