Invite Sister Helen to speak
2021 COVID-19 Update
Until further notice, all Sister Helen’s talks will be via Zoom (or another online platform). She will not be doing in-person speaking engagements. We want to assure you that, even remotely, Sr. Helen’s talks are a special event, and the feedback from the online talks she gave in 2020 has been universally positive.
Sr. Helen is also offering special Zoom modules, tailored both for schools and for other organizations wishing to build an event centered around the reading of one of Sr. Helen’s books (Dead Man Walking, The Death Of Innocents, River of Fire). Each module consists of:
- a 20-minute introductory zoom, where Sr. Helen introduces the book to the participants and gives them some context;
- class/group reading of the book, while keeping a journal (with a list of journal prompts provided by Sr. Helen);
- a final hour-long Zoom with Sr. Helen, fueled by the participants own questions.
To request a speaking engagement
