How to Write and Give a Speech by Joan Detz – Dedication

In Books, HowTo on December 13, 2010 at 1:28 pm

Joan Detz dedicated her bestseller “How to Write and Give a Speech:”

This book is dedicated to the people

who have attended my speechwriting seminars over the years.

They come from diverse work backgrounds –

from corporations and universities,

to the U.S. Congress and our nation’s armed forces.

But they leave with one important thing in common – a

respect for the value, and the power, of the spoken word.

They write speeches that make a difference.

I applaud them.

Theatrical note ~ She autographed both of her books with this rhyme: “All the best, Joan Detz.”

A Blog of Dedications

In Uncategorized on February 7, 2010 at 11:20 pm

Welcome to 2Y&Y (To You and You), the blog of dedications inspired by Rent’s La Vie Boheme:

“To days of inspiration, playing hooky, making something out of nothing
The need to express, to communicate
To going against the grain
Going insane
Going mad

To loving tension, no pension, to more than one dimension
To starving for attention
hating convention
hating pretension
Not to mention of course, hating dear old Mum and Dad

To riding your bike midday past the three-piece suits
To fruits
To no absolutes
To Absolut, to choice, to the Village Voice
To any passing fad

To being an us for once… instead of a them!
La Vie Boheme!

To faggots, lezzies, dykes, cross-dressers too
To me! To me!
To you and you and you, you and you
To people living with living with living with
Not dying from disease!

Let he among us without sin be the first to condemn
La Vie Boheme!
