As an advocate for mental health, Shapiro discusses her life story, the writing of her memoir - a work in progress for 15 years - and opens the floor for a Q and A where she further educates her audiences and gives those in need names and places of available resources. This informal time always proves to be extremely gratifying for Shapiro and enormously helpful to audience members, as they leave armed with new insights and hope! NO FEE IS REQUESTED! (HONORARIUMS ARE GLADLY ACCEPTED!) BOOK SIGNINGS ARE ALWAYS MADE AVAILABLE!

Shapiro speaks at libraries (Authors Speak Series), book clubs and other venues. To invite her to speak, please fill out the following form, listing a contact person and offering 3 dates and times of of your choosing, as bookings are now being scheduled for 2011-2012.
