What to Expect
Especially since many of Ms. Price's topics deal with issues that plague families in the early 21st century, she always finds a way to mix facts with a bit of levity when she speaks to group. Her emphasis is on motivating and encouraging others through the dark shadows of cancer, depression, domestic abuse, teenage drug addiction, etc.
Speaking sessions about the Amish religion and culture focus on her personal experiences living among different Amish communities since the age of 19.
Sessions regarding writing techniques or tips can be tailored to the group, but are recommended to include a workshop component.
Most speaking sessions last 45 minutes with time for Q&A, however the time can be tailored to the needs of the group.
Sarah Price comes from a long line of devout Mennonites, including numerous church leaders and ministers throughout the years. Her involvement with the Amish dates back to 1978 when she wrote her first novel, Fields of Corn, while studying anthropology and writing at Drew University. She was drawn to the amazing culture of the Amish of Lancaster County where Ms. Price is involved with numerous Amish communities and is considered family by some and friend by most others. Fields of Corn went on to become an Amazon bestseller and First Impressions, A Retelling of Pride & Prejudice, Sarah's salute to Jane Austen from an Amish perspective, debuted on the ECPA bestseller list. In 2014, An Amish Buggy Ride became a #1 Amazon bestseller in Religious Romance. In 2016, An Empty Cup was #8 on all of Amazon.
