About Jane Kurtz
Now Jane speaks about being an author at schools and conferences--in all but ten of the United States, so far, and such places as Uganda, Nigeria, Kenya, France, Germany, Romania, England, Indonesia, Cambodia, the Philippines, Japan, and Russia. Her travels have put her in touch with all kinds of kids who are changing the world, one kid at a time, something her idealistic parents made her also want to do. She directs the Creative Team for Ready Set Go Books published by Open Hearts Big Dreams (http://openheartsbigdreams.org/) to open the world of reading for children in Ethiopia.
