Irene is available for speaking as both an author and an advocate for children with depression.

Irene would like to think of this not as a presentation but as a conversation: a shared experience that includes dialogue, questions, and perhaps even some answers. These engagements typically include a short reading of the book to serve as the starting point for this important conversation.

We owe it to our children to do whatever it takes to help them through the darkness. With the rise in childhood depression and suicide, we need to do more as caregivers, friends, and communities. Engaging in conversations and speaking out is one way we can spread light on children who are hiding in the darkness and give them hope.

Audiences include people of all ages.

Contact Irene with speaking requests.
