Family and Inspirational Presentations

I’d love to share my personal journey or my path from children’s book festival founder to children’s book author with your audience. Here are a sample of the programs I offer to organizations, corporations and libraries. Contact me to discuss how I can tailor my message for your group.

Family Presentation

(60 Mins)

History, Herstory, Yourstory!

Millie Benson’s, Virginia Hamilton’s and Christine Brennan’s stories are shared with general audiences. Fun activity involves writing what is important about your story!

Motivational Presentation

(45 Mins)

I share my love and loss of my daughter, Claire and creation of Claire’s Day.

Moving Forward One Step at a Time

(60 Mins)

Julie shares the tragic loss of her ten-year-old daughter, Claire and moving forward joyfully in her grief journey. Discover one mother’s path in honoring her daughter gone too soon and validating the relationships with her amazing husband and two children. Be prepared to laugh and cry! Tissues provided.

All I need for a presentation is a laptop/projector/screen, lapel or hand-held microphone, small table for materials and plenty of water. I love working lunches too, but note I’m gluten-free. And I love dark chocolate!
