Greg, i.e. Professor Moptop, is wonderful to work with. The library has hosted him a number of times and the attendee feedback is unanimously positive. His
knowledge, and the content of his programming, is unmatched. In addition, he typically draws a large audience because of his large social media following, name recognition, and subject matter.

In the past he has presented in person but, over the past few years, he has adapted and presents virtually. Regardless of the situation, he is consistently flexible, communicative, and collaborative.'s picture

We have had Greg (Prof Moptop) do many events at the Deerfield Library. We try to book him at least once a year. He's always a huge hit at our library and our patrons love him and his presentations. One of the good things about Greg is he promotes the events on his own social media platforms. He has a number of fans out there that love to attend his events. So we've always had a nice full house every time we've booked him. As The Beatles say, "A Splendid Time Is Guaranteed For All!"
