Introduction: I'm Gavin Edwards, the New York Times-bestselling author of 12 books, including The Tao of Bill Murray and Kindness and Wonder: Why Mister Rogers Matters Now More Than Ever. I've been a repeat guest on the Today show (NBC), All Things Consider (NPR), and Behind the Music (VH1). For two decades, I've also delighted, moved, and inspired audiences all over North America. I take pride in giving exactly the speech that your organization needs, whether that helps unlock the listeners' creativity, inspires their generosity and kindness, or motivates them with stories of the A-list stars I've spent time with to become superstars themselves.

Mr Edwards visited our library after the release of his book "Kindness and Wonder: How Mister Rogers Matters Now More than Ever" and he was a delight. Gavin was very responsive and easy to work with during the planning process. The program was very well attended. He was a very personable and engaging speaker. I would not hesitate to have him back or recommend him for other speaking engagements.

Gavin arrived early and totally prepared, ready to greet his audience with charm and expert quips before settling down for the presentation. This is a tough bunch, but he wooed them with great stories and interesting bits about the book. I heard from numerous people how much they enjoyed it, asking me how in the world did I land such a great speaker? We can't wait for him to return with his next book. He will always be most welcome here!

Gavin is an engaging speaker. Imagine this, he's an author with a personality, a creator who imparts interesting information and is not afraid to laugh and have a good time doing it. He spoke to Charlotte Writers Club and shared interesting stories and craft tips, too. He appeared with me on Charlotte Readers Podcast and when we finished recording, I said to myself, "that's going to be a great episode," and you know what, it was.

Gavin is a brilliant writer and editor with that rare combination of deep expertise in his subjects with a vast frame of reference about our culture. He engages his audiences, handles questions generously, and brings appropriate humor to his presentations. More impressively, perhaps, he is equally attentive to and at ease with community college students and actual rock stars. Audiences are lucky to encounter him and his work; my college has invited him twice and will no doubt do so again.

Gavin Edwards was our featured speaker for the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library's Final Draught series. He was excellent! We met prior to the event to discuss the format and time. Gavin arrived well prepared with a/v presentation. Gavin's presentation was funny, interesting and engaging. Our audience enjoyed his presentation so much. We love to connect our audience to best selling authors. Gavin's presentation is not to be missed.
