As a speaker, Kate is able to draw on her many years of experience as a theatre actress to craft compelling, heartfelt presentations that move and inspire her audiences. Many audience members say they feel they’ve witnessed more a one-woman show than an author presentation… Whether addressing a middle-grade classroom or a university lecture hall, a bookstore or a museum, Kate is completely comfortable communicating and does so in a warm, open and down-to-earth way that engages and touches every listener, no matter their age or intellect.

To date, Kate has personally presented the story of the radium girls in close to 30 states.


Topics include:




“Kate Moore brought down the house at the Morristown Festival of Books, receiving a rare standing ovation from the 400 readers packed into the venue that afternoon. The standing-room-only audience listened in rapt attention (it was so quiet, you could hear a pin drop!), as Kate recounted the story of the radium girls, her detailed research, and fascinating writing process. She was a delight both on-stage and off, enthusiastically interacting with book buyers and happily answering their questions as she signed. We’d welcome her back with open arms!”

- Heather Alexander, Director of Programming, Morristown Festival of Books, Morristown, New Jersey

“Ms. Moore’s 2019 talk on The Radium Girls stands out in my mind as one of the very best in the twenty-year history of our public lecture series… She is among only a half-dozen or so speakers in the entire history of the series to receive a standing ovation… I was impressed by Ms. Moore’s comprehensive and insightful grasp of her subject, but even more by the (seemingly effortless) effectiveness of how she conveyed this information… From the outset of her talk, she captured the audience, drawing them in with a warmth and openness not often found in speakers, even the very good ones. Seldom have I seen anyone establish such instant (and lasting) rapport with an audience… I heartily recommend her.”

- William B. Crawley, Professor Emeritus of History, University of Mary Washington, Fredericksburg, Virginia

“Kate Moore’s visit to our high school was one of the best events of our school year…Through Kate’s heartfelt and interesting presentation, she made a historical event from over one hundred years ago relevant and important, and it was a wonderful learning experience for all.”
