RECENT (AND UPCOMING) APPEARANCES

Anne Ford and John-Richard Thompson have appeared at over a hundred schools, parent groups, corporations and conferences since the publication of their first book, Laughing Allegra.  As Anne always says at the beginning of her remarks: “I’m not a teacher and I’m not a professional.  I am a mother, and I speak to you today as a mother.”  Her message is a result of deeply-felt and hard-won experience and has become a message of hope for the many hundreds of (mostly) mothers who have attended her presentations.  For further information regarding Anne’s availability to speak to your conference, organization or corporation, please write us at annefordbooks@gmail.com
