Heidi Fishman is available for speaking engagements for schools, synagogues, libraries, bookstores, and private groups.


  • She can tell children more about what it was like for her mother, Tutti, during the Holocaust.
  • She can explain to relatives of Holocaust survivors how she researched her family’s story and discovered much more than her mother remembered.
  • She can take your group step-by-step through her writing process. She will explain how she took her mother’s memories, uncovered facts around them, and then created scenes that brought the information alive in Tutti’s Promise.
  • Would you like to invite Heidi to meet with your book group to discuss Tutti’s Promise?
  • In the future she will be able to talk about Scraps of Hope and where she is in the research process for this nonfiction project.

Heidi does not charge for her time! She only requests reimbursement for travel expenses and will do what she can to keep these to a minimum.

* This was an amazing opportunity for students to connect literature and history in a rich, meaningful way. * Heidi and her mother gave a stirring, emotionally engaging presentation, and our students were riveted!
