General Info About Presentations

It’s a privilege to share concepts and stories with people in a structured forum. I have had the pleasure of talking before dozens of assemblies from a wide variety of backgrounds, women’s groups to writer’s groups, nature lovers to librarians. I have spoken at book festivals, education fairs, and conferences. There is one thing all audiences have in common: they expect the experience of listening to enrich their lives. I do my best to deliver. Click the blue links for details about the following types of presentations:

“I'd sing your praises from the highest bookshelves.”
— Dana Braccia, Scottsdale Civic Center Library

In appreciation for their support, I’d like to thank some of the organizations and events that have granted me opportunity to speak to their audiences. If you are considering a presentation for your group, please feel free to contact anyone below for a reference.
