Speaking Events


“One of my favorite things to do …”

One of my favorite things about being an author is sharing my book and personalexperiences with captive audiences within academia, libraries, business, charities, maritime groups, clubs, social events, etc.

I target each presentation to the needs and interests of my audience. Typically, my talk includes a 6-minute clip form “CBS Sunday Morning” with Charles Osgood, by whom I was interviewed. I then share my personal experience, that of other survivors, as well as the controversy involved with the collision, rescue and sinking of the Andrea Doria. Questions and answers follow. The duration of my talk plus Q & A can last from 30 to 60 minutes, based on request.

I also bring artifacts and/or a survivor’s outfit, historical photos, and related books depending on the facilities.

Since Alive on the Andrea Doria encompasses a wide variety of topics, it appeals to:

  • History and maritime enthusiasts
  • Teachers and students of social science, history, and Italian
  • Seekers of adventure and mystery
  • Seekers of inspirational stories
  • Non-fiction writers

    . Simpson can deliver presentations in French and Italian as well. (Having taught pre-K3 to AP 12, the author will adjust the presentation for suitability at all grade levels.)

Additionally, I am prepared to expand on the following:

  • History: post-world WWII immigration, transportation, discrimination
  • An author’s journey: from the decision to write, to getting published and marketing
  • Writing Memoir: the challenges of researching and revealing personal information
  • Character education: the main focus of my books is life ethics, i.e. seeking the good, following one’s heart, pursuing the truth, gratitude, courage and heroism, pride for one’s heritage, the immigrant work ethic that built America, and leaving a legacy, improving the quality of people’s lives
  • Italian and French language: presenting the story in Italian or French
  • Gratitude: We must be thankful for all our challenges, even catastrophes; they teach us our greatest lessons. I can mention other examples from Thank God I…Stories of Inspiration for Every Situation (For more information on my inspirational presentations, click here: Thank God I…)
  • Women’s role in survival: the Andrea Doria women
