Events



I am available to speak on the life and work of Mayanist Tatiana Proskouriakoff at universities, libraries, museums, and civic and book clubs. March, which is designated as Women's History Month, is an especially meaningful time of the year for such a program.

As a North Carolina Humanities Council Road Scholar, my program which gives a general overview of the ancient Maya civilization, is available to non-profit groups by visiting the NC Humanities Council website. It is titled, "An Introduction to the Ancient Maya."
