Here is what some have said about recent talks:

Mary Dall of Canaveral PEN Women wrote, "Looking for an entertaining speaker?  As they say in Hawaii, 'Book him, Danno.'"

Comments from attendees at the NE FWA Writers conference: "Quite humorous and realistic about writing prospects,"  Powerpoint presentation was a plus for taking notes," and "he should write comedy." 

“Thanks for the great program last Sunday.  I really enjoyed it.  We had a great turnout--96 people!  Good luck with your books," Cathy Mahoney, Leesburg Public Library.

"Steve Glassman is as clever as he is knowledgeable. Spinning tales of ancient Mayan cultures, transporting us through word and picture into the deepest jungles of Central America, Steve kept us so transfixed with his fascinating stories we never realized we were being educated. That’s the mark of a great teacher and storyteller,” Vic DiGenti, VP/Programs, Friends of the Library-Ponte Vedra Beach.

"Your presentation at the Ponte Vedra library [was] excellent, " Jan Bialka, Ponte Vedra Friends of Library.

"Thanks for coming Friday evening- I had a great time. Your presentation was informative and fun.   Again, I’d like to say I enjoyed your program.  Now I want to go back to Mexico and check out some more ruins," Mary-Louise Rowe-Fischer, Englewood Charlotte Library.

"Thank you so much for coming and presenting your program.  I truly enjoyed it and have had quite a few comments from the audience about how they enjoyed it also,"  Missy Hadden, Frostproof Library. 

"Dear Steve-I wanted to thank you for coming all that way to talk to our group.  Your style is so fun and enthusiastic as well as informative.  Everyone was very pleased,"  Kathleen Teaze, Sanibel Public Library.

"We had great feedback from your talk," Robin Moore, St. Augustine Archaeological Association.

"Your presentation was right on the money--humorous, and entertaining and informative.  I've had many comments about 'what a good choice' you were.  Terry Jones, Flagler County Library. 

"A superb presentation.  Afterwards I was deluged with queries about who you were and how you learned all that stuff.  Excellent," Reinhold Schliepper, Universalist/Unitarian Church, Ormond Beach.

"You kept the house entranced right up until the end of your talk.  Great photos,"  Kevin Vance Melbourne library.

Here are some snaps from the Englewood presentation, thanks to Nancy Zigo.
