A workshop at the 2017 NSA Conference Kim Block attended the 2017 National Stuttering Association Conference in Dallas, Texas. Her husband David and their two children also attended. One of the reasons she was there was to promote her new children's book about stuttering, Adventures of a Stuttering Superhero. Kim will be the keynote speaker at the Canadian Stuttering Association conference in October.
