Award-winning author Kate Gingold writes to share her love for history with readers of all ages who would rather not open a big old dusty history book. Agatha Christie's twentieth century England is the era Kate is currently exploring. Her earliest books bring to life stories of the prairie settler, rich with details describing every day existence in nineteenth century America.
Kate's enthusiasm for the past is also evident in her presentations for community groups and classrooms. PowerPoint slides, costumes, and toys are just some of the tools she uses to make history real to today's audiences.
How different could life in post-World War I England or on the American frontier be from our lives today? Very different indeed! From steam engines to photography to matches, exciting changes appeared on the time line during those years. These details are fascinating to to learn and ought to be remembered.
