Andrea completed Kate Messner’s workshop titled REINVENTING AUTHOR VISITS in September, 2020. 

"Andrea exceeded expectations in presenting information about the Sioux Code Talkers and added interesting tidbits that are not in her book. Her presentation was fascinating and well organized, revealing secrets that could now be told. When speaking, she included everyone in the room--and she packed our largest room with nearly 100 people. She welcomed questions and answered honestly. I recommend Andrea as a presenter, and I will continue telling others about Sioux Code Talkers of World War II, an important book for people in my area of the country."

"I have been an avid student of history for many years, focusing primarily on the period of the World Wars. I had done some research on Sioux code talkers for a paper I presented at a conference at Augustana College in Sioux Falls, SD entitled ”World War II Comes to the Northern Plains,” focusing on the wartime exploits of Clarence Wolf Guts. When I saw that Andrea was going to be presenting at our public library on her book, “Top Secret Honor: Sioux Code Talkers of World War II,” I jumped at the chance to go! I was keenly interested in learning more about the contributions made by our Native Americans using their language as code during the war. Needless to say, I was not disappointed!! I could tell that, first of all, Andrea was very passionate about her work. That passion showed through in her presentation, in which I learned several “secrets” that I had not known previously. I could tell that she poured her heart and soul into her work. Learning about the scout activities of our Sioux code talkers was particularly interesting! Her book will be an outstanding resource in helping others to learn about the contributions our local Native Americans made during the war, and I will be quick to steer people to this book, and any other speaking engagements Andrea has promoting her work. I can definitely say it was an honor to meet Andrea, and to attend the event! Thank you, Andrea, for your tireless efforts in documenting the exploits of our Sioux code talkers!!!!"
