Kate Schatz and Miriam Klein Stahl’s visit to Fresno State ignited the fire of feminist activism in my Women’s Studies students…My students were truly impressed and transformed by their authenticity, creativity, and commitment to social justice. I highly recommend Schatz and Stahl as speakers for your next campus event–whether you teach kindergarteners or college students!

We love coming to colleges and universities to share our books, and offer a range of ways we can engage with your students and faculty. Recent campus visits include:
- Fresno State
- Willamette College
- Menlo College
- Lewis & Clark
- Dominican University
- UC Riverside
- UC Santa Cruz
- UC San Diego
- California College of the Arts
- St. Mary’s College
Though our books are aimed at younger readers, we find that the content and process remains relevant and interesting for college students as well. We are often able to connect more high-level ideas from the books to the work that college students are doing in a range of courses, from Women/Gender Studies to Creative Writing and Art to Literature, History, Political Science, and Education. The structure of these visits—and our fees—varies greatly, from a single lecture or book talk to a multi-day immersive visit.
For example: At Willamette College we did an evening book talk, followed the next day by a workshop with a Women’s Studies class. Kate discussed how to create engaging biographies, and Miriam led students in a hands-on papercut workshop. Students selected their own “rad woman” to focus on, then created short bios and papercuts and held a public art exhibition at the college. At Fresno State we gave a large public lecture as part of the interdisciplinary “Rad Women of Fresno State” project, and visited art classes and Women’s Studies classes, and also did an assembly at a local public elementary school.
