"You demonstrated a lovely combination of professionalism with the ability to connect with and captivate your audience."

"We loved having Keiko Kasza visit our school.
Actively using teachers and members of the audience as participants, Keiko talked about her Japanese background,
the difficult work of writing and rewriting books, and the inspiration for her stories and illustrations.
Her warm, engaging manner and enthusiastic presentations captured and delighted our K-2 students' attention."
