Events
For a comprehensive planning guide for an event with me, please download the Animals Spell Love Event Checklist (PDF).
Here's a review by a Children's Librarian of a recent event:
"We recently had David Cundy, the author of Animals Spell Love here to do a program for us. It was a really lovely experience for everyone.... His manner with the audience was easy, engaging and his information was just right for our mixture of ages from 5 to 12 year olds and their family members.... David was easy to work with and very professional, and he is honestly interested in spreading the message of love and peace rather than making money for his work.... He is working on a book about animals spelling peace now, and when that is done we will definitely have him back."
