Take Your Child to Work Day at the U.S. State Department

I don’t work at the State Department in Washington DC, but I took one of my kids—and my wife—there on Take Your Child to Work Day 2019. Technically, I did work there that day; they kindly asked me to give a presentation at the Ralph Bunche Library

The audience: State Department employees and their children. 

They requested that I speak about Thirty Minutes Over Oregon; an employee had seen the New York Times review and suggested reaching out to me. The State Department invites authors and others to speak, but this was the first time they’ve done it for TYCTWD.

An unexpected opportunity. A lovely turnout. An honor indeed. Thank you again!
