Reviews

Deirdre Sinnott is an impressive speaker who gets her audience personally involved. She interacted freely with the audience, answering their questions and comments and soliciting their ideas, while skillfully maintaining focus on her message.
-- Phebe Eckfeldt

Deirdre Sinnott uses her life as a spring board to discuss addiction, sexual abuse and other problems young adults need to know they do not face alone.  She approaches her audience with emotion, sincerity, insight and, most importantly, humor.
-- Dr. Leonard Vogt
Professor Emeritus of English, LaGuardia Community College, The City University of New York

I am happy to recommend Deirdre Sinnott enthusiastically as a speaker on the topics of prevention of and recovery from sexual abuse and recovery from substance abuse and addiction. She recently presented her work to a sophisticated audience of writers and other lovers of literature at The Phoenix Reading Series, which I coordinate and host. Her presentation was both very well-written and spoken and recounted an impressive triumph of self-control, good will, persistence and endurance.
-- Michael Graves
Author Adam and Cain
Host of The Phoenix Reading Series

I've seen Deirdre Sinnott perform her work and she knows how to reach, educate, and enthrall an audience. Her writing is funny and touching. She reveals intimacies with ease and has the conviction that tough topics, that adversely affect peoples lives, need to be brought into the public discourse. I recommend her to anyone who has a challenging issue that needs to be handled with warmth, sincerity, and smarts.
-- Vittoria repetto

Deirdre Sinnott is an excellent speaker, organizer and leader. She engineered a successful series of programs at our store that brought in new customers and helped local authors reach a wider audience. As master of ceremonies she was entertaining and her spoken-word performances were the backbone of the programs.
