Author Q&A with UTEP's New York
Through the Literary Imagination class.

“Natalie is not only knowledgeable but has a lovely way of presenting material so that it is easily understandable and fascinating. . . . .I most enthusiastically recommend her presentation to all libraries and other institutions throughout the country. . . ." Marcia Blackman, Head of Reader Services, East Meadow Public Library.  

"Natalie's historical slideshow is one of the most engaging presentations we've ever had." Camilla Lee, Authors on Main, Wakefield, RI

"Natalie's presentation was filled with photographs and really amazing true stories about the area the book takes place in and the mine fires that are still burning today!  I didn't even know about this until I read her book and experienced her program. She was fantastic." Kathy Buchsbaum, Asst Director, Lynbrook Library

". . . the attendees insisted Ms. Harnett was one of the best speakers that we have ever had."  Jo-Ann Carhart, Head of Adult Services, E. Islip Library
