Come Hear Me Speak!

The following list shows places I'm speaking, although some are for private groups or clubs.  If you know someone in one of the clubs, you can probably ask about being a guest.  Keep watching for updates!  I'll also post updates as they come up on the page "A Rare Titanic Family" on Facebook.  In the following list, speeches in Bold are for A Rare Titanic Family.  Speeches in Italics are for my book Wings of Opportunity:  The Wright Brothers in Montgomery, Alabama, 1910.

ALL NEW!!!  I now appear as Sylvia Caldwell, who tells the Titanic story as though it's summer, 1912.  This 50-minute one-woman show was developed for the Florida Chautauqua and has been shown in many other venues as well.  I have to admit, it's a LOT of fun.  Ask me about it!  (That's me in costume as Sylvia, at left.)  NOTE:  I appear in costume at both types of Titanic shows (traditional or Sylvia show).

Those wishing to hear about the Titanic may select either the traditional PowerPoint show based on the stories of the Titanic my great-uncle told me, or they may choose to have me perform as Sylvia.

I also speak on:

 *History of the Mass Media  

 *Carrie Ingalls, Frontier Journalist (You may remember Carrie from Little House on the Prairie)            

 *Non-fiction writing

Unless noted, all times are in Central Time (US).  I'll always bring my book for sale and will take cash, checks, or credit cards.  In Alabama, the price with tax is $23.  The price varies in each state according to the state sales tax.

If you have a group you'd like me to speak to, do contact me through my publisher, NewSouth Books:, or 334-834-3556.
