Public Speaking

I’ve been a popular and successful speaker at conferences, universities, synagogues, museums and other venues, ranging from the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC to the Festival of Jewish Culture in Krakow, Poland to the International Country Music Conference in Nashville and the Pop Conference in Seattle.

I give one-off presentations but also can serve as scholar-in-residence or can arrange multi-appearance presentations at several venues in a specific city. I tailor each talk to the specific venue and audience, and I illustrate all my talks with my photographs.

My lecture topics range from Jewish heritage issues to journalism, to European country music — and more.

Please contact me at ruth [at] ruthellengruber [dot] com if you are interested in having me appear. I will work with local organizers to build the best possible program for the audience.
