One of the best lectures I ever had!

Colleen’s Frida Kahlo performance was riveting. The perfect mix of visual representations and honest depictions of the woman/artist deliver the complete Frida Kahlo experience.

Colleen’s eclectic pool of knowledge is rivaled only by her passion and enthusiasm for what she does. Her impact was such that after only one presentation at CCBC, our students have expressly requested her services time and time again.

Colleen has an excellent reputation in the broader academic community and she didn’t disappoint. She is incredibly knowledgeable about her subjects and portrays them with grace, grit, and ease. She is smart, approachable and funny.

I’ve used Colleen in several capacities: as entertainment for a personal fund-raiser, as a presenter for a continuing education class, and as a tour leader for a literary tour. Her knowledge and passion is unmatched.

Loved all 4 events: O’Keeffe, Kahlo, Dickinson and Parker. Would highly recommend to others.

Colleen’s performances are loaded with fresh perspectives and well-crafted insights. I especially like the way she easily maneuvers across identity-boundaries of race, gender, class, and power. Fresh and classy is the best way that I can describe her genius, her person and her work.

Colleen Webster’s performance as Emily Dickinson, author and gardener was most engaging and appropriate for our audience!

Colleen’s lecture on the expectations and representations of contemporary American women was fresh, relevant, multifaceted, and most importantly, it kept my students fully engaged for the duration of the program. I can genuinely say that this presentation was not only on a topic of paramount importance for our young women, but that it struck a chord with all of my students in a profound way.

Colleen’s portrayal of these wonderful women is inspiring. If you want to meet some of history’s great women, you only need to meet Colleen.

I love the poetry of Emily Dickinson and wanted to know more about Dorothy Parker. I thought that Dr. Webster offered everything I hoped to see and learn, and more. I really hope that she offers similar presentations in the future!
