Author

Kate Kelly is an engaging speaker and successful author of more than 30 nonfiction titles ranging from the bestselling title Organize Yourself! to Living Safe in an Unsafe World.  She has recently returned to her love of history (she first wrote about election day history early in her career) and has written about science history and the history of world exploration in two popular titles for Taylor Publishing, That’s Not in My Science Book and the just-published That’s Not in my Geography Book.  She has just completed a six-volume History of Medicine for Facts on File that will be sold for use in high school and college libraries.
    
Every election cycle, Kate addresses audiences about the history of American presidential elections.  She has addressed school groups and community and business gatherings.  Today she also speaks on other topics, including the history of medicine. Her stories are entertaining and engaging.  (For additional speaking topics, see www.americacomesalive.com.)
 
Whether in print or on the speaking circuit, Kate presents information in an accessible and interesting manner. Relying on her background as a theatre major while at Smith College, and her involvement with organizations such as the New-York Historical Society and the Westchester County Historical Society, she draws on classic and lesser-known stories of developments in America and the world at large.
 
Kate is a veteran of both local and nationwide talk and news programs and has been quoted in publications such as Time and The Wall Street Journal. She has appeared on World News Tonight, Good Morning America, The View, The CBS Early Show, Fox and Friends, and on CNN, MSNBC and The Fox News Channel.

She serves on the board of trustees for the Westchester County Historical Society and the Larchmont Historical Society.  She is also on the board of the Friends of Smith College Libraries, and actively helps raise funds for scientific research to find a cure for lupus .
