Additional Booking Notes
My requests/needs are few and simple:
I will need a table to set up my book display, for those wishing to purchase a signed copy of Under His Helmet. (It will be helpful to me to have someone monitoring the table in my absence/while I'm speaking, please.)
A bottle of water (at room temperature) and a small can of pineapple juice (room temperature, also) will help keep my voice fresh throughout my speaking engagement.
