Adult Group Presentations

If you’re looking for an interesting and inspirational idea for a bible study, book club, retreat, informal get together or larger group, consider inviting Jan to share from her stories and experiences. She has three different presentations so you can choose the topic that will be the most exciting for your group!

  • Review of In the Garden

    Along with a review of her mother’s extraordinary story, Janet will examine the genre of memoir and the unique challenges of writing personal story.

  • “Things with Feathers” I: Tales from Pelican Cove

    Janet will present the stories and inspiration behind her series of children’s books, the interesting facts she learned about the birds in her books and the amazing connections she has enjoyed through her writing.

  • “Things with Feathers” II: Mimi the Mimic and the Great Migration

    Based on a poem by Emily Dickinson, Mimi is a tale of hope and remembering. Janet will explore the themes of hope and remembering in literature and then read and discuss ‘Mimi,” exploring the ways these themes are developed in the story.

$25.00 is the fee for a presentation. Books will be made available for purchase.

Janet’s presentation on her book In the Garden was very well received by our residents here at Oak Crest in our Independent Living setting. The audience related to her stories and appreciated her Christian insights. I would recommend Janet Hasselbring and her presentation to other senior groups.

Jan’s presentation is powerful, faith-filled and moves the audience to contemplate the deciding moments in their own lives. And more importantly it inspires through the example of Jan’s mother’s faith in Christ and a personal assessment of one’s own faith!
