'Anna had the audience locked on to her presentation from start to finish. She unfolded a fascinating story of literary detective work, tracing the lives of her Polish grandmother and her family, and the audience couldn't wait for a formal question-and-answer period at the end -- they threw in questions as the session went along, and she handled them brilliantly and honestly.’ Chris, committee member of Williamstown Literary Festival

School visits

Anna Ciddor's fun, lively presentations are full of audience participation and ’show and tell'. The audience respond with great enthusiasm, while teachers appreciate the little hints and advice that apply to the students’ own work. 

‘Your presentation was fascinating and I thought the way you linked the story with the research process and family connection was perfect’ Jo Laretive, teacher librarian at Moriah College, Sydney

‘I was inspired so much when you came in and how you turned family history into an absolutely amazing book! I really hope that one day I can do the same’ Elena, student at PLC, Melbourne
