Book Review by Kathryn Svendsen


Kathryn Svendsen – orientation and mobility instructor and book reviewer

Kathryn Svendsen was born in Calgary Alberta, but she now lives in British Columbia. She attended the University of British Columbia and received a Bachelor of Education (Elementary) degree and a Diploma in the Education of Visually Impaired Children. That wasn’t enough schooling, so while she worked full time as a teacher of visually impaired children with students from kindergarten to grade 12, she got her Master of Arts in Special Needs, with the focus of Orientation and Mobility (that would be teaching blind and visually impaired persons how to use a white cane and navigate in the community). She has been working with disabled children and youth for 27 years.

Kathryn lives with her husband, two children and three miniature dachshunds. She is a Christian, with a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. If she could be as active as she liked, she would spend a lot more time hiking, biking, kayaking, and camping. Her husband loves photography so she often accompanies  him on long walks when she feels up to it. She has done all kinds of crafts too, from quilting, needlepoint, cross-stitch, sewing, card-making, quilling… but her favourite thing to do is read. And when she can’t read… she listens to books

    Hi Amy,

    I was so glad that Kathryn focused on the faith element in your book. That is so important. And the fact that she herself is a mobility instructor adds so much credibility to her review. Congratulations for a wonderful review.

    Take Care,

    Thanks, Matt!
    This past weekend, I noticed the other author printed some reviews along with newspaper clippings and kept them in a book to display at book signings. I believe I will do that with Kathryn’s book review. Hope things are going well for you.
    Tomorrow would have been my sister’s birthday.
    Take care,

    Another review for your book. Great.
    It sounds like a great idea to have clippings of your reviews at your signings with you. People who attend them will appreciate seeing those I am sure.
    Good luck with future readings and thinking of you for the first anniversary of your sister’s birthday without her here.

    Thank you, Kerry!
    It was so cool to see the other author’s book reviews and clippings. I really want to do that. I have a question for you and will pm you later today.
    Yes, the reviews are trickling in now but I loved that one!
    Thank you for your kind words about my sister. It was a difficult day!
