Dear Readers,

For the past 15 years (!), I've had the tremendous privilege of speaking about my novels and writing at book clubs in your homes, in your libraries, in your classrooms, at events, and at fundraisers. Speaking for you is one of my greatest joys! To request me for your book club or event, please fill out the form below. I'm looking forward to connecting!


“Jenna spoke at our Book and Author Luncheon for the Wolfeboro Public Library major fundraiser in 2016. She spoke to 160 avid readers for herself and our second author, who was in a car accident and couldn't attend. Jenna was fantastic. She was scheduled for twenty minutes and easily filled in the next  twenty minutes with humor, teaching and intriguing stories. Everyone was sorry she didn't go on longer. I can't wait for her new book to come out! Hopefully she will come back to us!!!!!”

“At Adventures by the Book, our mission is to connect readers with authors and their books through interesting, unique, and adventurous events and travels, so it is like gold for us when we work with someone like Jenna Blum who can make our events and travels a smashing success. Jenna possesses that rare trifecta of not only being a talented writer but also of being an engaging speaker and one who knows how to intimately connect with her readers. In 2017, she honored us by participating as our featured author on a Germany Adventure by the Book, in which we traveled with sixteen of her reading fans to Bavaria, Germany, to recreate her inspiration, research, and the story behind Those Who Save Us. We had ten days to watch her in action, and not only did she charm the pants off of our group, but she delighted local bookshop owners, fellow tourists, and pretty much every local with whom we crossed paths. And she learned enough of the language in that short amount of time to delight all. She is smart, sassy, funny, brilliant, genuine, and engaging. I couldn't recommend her highly enough to for public speaking opportunities.”

“Jenna is  knowledgeable, intelligent, and accessible as a speaker to any audience lucky enough to listen to her. I have been present on numerous occasions when she has spoken and you could hear a pin drop in the room as audiences were intent on enjoying her every word! She has a way of presenting her ideas in living color. Jenna is warm, engaging, humorous, and always professional...and I’d like to add adorable!”

“Jenna is an incredibly gifted speaker. I’ve seen her hold an entire room, captivated, in the palm of her hand. I’m a professional public speaker, and to be honest, I’m not sure how Jenna does it—creating that unique chemistry, trust, and bond between herself and her audience. Perhaps it’s a unique combination of her deeply intelligent, thoughtful, and hilarious perspective on her books, characters, and the writing process. Perhaps it is her willingness to be so courageously authentic, honest, and vulnerable. Perhaps it’s some indefinable, inimitable, magical Jenna-ness—leaving the audience alternately laughing out loud (literally!) at her stories, or sniffing back tears when she reads a particularly heartrending scene, but they always leave feeling filled up. Public speaking is a unique and extremely challenging skillset and that Jenna Blum does it with the very best of them, easily holding ground with any Oprah SuperSoul talent.”
