Christina was absolutely marvelous and everyone loved her presentation. We had well over 250 people and the book signing with Gene’s Books was a great success. She spoke for fifty minutes and we had a fifteen minute Q&A afterward. The champagne reception we had after her presentation was fabulous. The high point of the evening was, of course, the charming and witty slide presentation she gave of her book Christina’s World. All in all quite a memorable evening.

Christina Baker Kline’s author talk was one of the most highly anticipated and well attended of our long-standing series. She was a dynamic speaker and enhanced the program with resources which made the Orphan Train movement come alive. The evening performance at the Chase Center had 1200 book lovers in attendance.
Christina was an engaging speaker—entertaining and informative, but beyond that she is a wonderful story-teller. Her audience was with her from the minute she stepped up to the podium, to her concluding remarks. We enjoyed every minute of her talk.

Christina Baker Kline was an outstanding speaker for a very large group of readers. Her topic was so interesting, that she reached all the participants, both young and old with her storytelling skills. She was able to break down her writing process and engage us in how it evolved. The Orphan Train grew from an article in the newspaper. Through extensive research and interviews, she was able to capture a time in the past masterfully. She provided photographs and more details of the real people she met in developing her story. She was attentive to us on a personal level and spent time answering questions and autographing books. I can fully recommend her as a speaker who delivers.
Christina Baker Kline presented an engaging and entertaining program on her novel Orphan Train. She was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. Not only is she personable and enjoyable to be around, she is also extremely professional. Her talk was well organized, and included photos of the orphan children who inspired her novel. Naturally, these images spurred several questions from the audience, and Christina had ready answers and personal anecdotes about her interactions with these subjects to share as additional background material. The committee that organized this day heard dozens of positive comments from attendees. I cannot recommend her highly enough. She did a terrific job!
