"Students at Lafayette College are still talking about Susan Katz Miller's presentations on campus, even six weeks later. Her ability to raise important, provocative questions with humor and grace created a safe and welcoming space to discuss issues of dating, religion, race, family and identity. Miller is a thoughtful, engaging speaker and author who understands the issues college students are facing."
Alex Hendrickson
College Chaplain, Lafayette College
“Close to 100 people attended including an Orthodox rabbi, a minister from the United Church of Christ, previous imams of a near-by mosque and interested families struggling with the challenge of how to accommodate two faiths. Susan proved herself to be an articulate and dynamic speaker. Her personal story is beautifully told and Susan rises to the challenge of questions with clarity and aplomb,”
Cathy Nicholson
Weston-Wayland Interfaith Action Group
“A dynamic speaker and storyteller, Susan Katz Miller is opening up a vital conversation with sensitivity and skill. By elevating the often overlooked stories and perspectives of interfaith families, couples, and individuals, Susan has a great deal to teach atheist and religious communities, college and university students, and general audiences. The stories she shares are deeply instructive—if we listen carefully, people of diverse beliefs and backgrounds can learn much about how to live together from Susan’s thoughtful, inspiring, and well-researched approach.”
“Thank you for sharing your expertise, honesty, humor and experience with all of us! Listening to someone articulate everything that you believe inside is an incredible gift that fills doubt with confidence, loneliness with connection, and ignorance with knowledge. We left feeling prouder, lighter, more whole, and frankly elated by you! May many others get the opportunity to receive your gift.”
“…rave reviews for the clarity, sensitivity and practicality of your talk.”
