Co-sponsored by A Thousand Stories Bookshop


Judith Mudd-Krijgelmans is a former Foreign Service officer and diplomat who has drawn on her life experiences to write two memoirs: Flowers for Brother Mudd (2018) and Chocolates for Mary Julia (2022). Having led memoir writing groups in the last 15 years, her presence in literary writing has emerged ever since the publication of her first book. Based on her story, she has been engaging audiences on the difficult topic of American diversity and how, given its slave past, the United States is viewed in the world.

Melvina Noel is a college educator and a certified children’s yoga instructor who loves reading and writing above everything. Her favorite places to be are libraries and bookstores. She enjoys baking, playing the piano, playing chess, and watercolor painting. She is the author of two picture books for children: Chef Edna: Queen of Southern Cooking (2023) and Mama's Library Summers (March 2024).
