Public Speaking Engagements and Book Signings
Here you will find MernaLyn's Book Tour Appearance Schedule:

I am busy planning my future book tour and can't wait to meet and inspire even more of my readers in the days to come!

If you would like to invite me as a guest speaker, feel free to contact me through my contact form, here.

I was honored to have been asked to speak at Columbia University (yes, the Ivy League school in Manhattan!) twice!!.
I had a speaking engagement and meet-and-greet with so many wonderful people and The New York City Insider picked up the story.
