"“Candace was an absolute joy to work with. Our audience quite enjoyed her lecture. She was particularly accommodating at the book signing – she signed autographs and took pictures with audience members until everyone who wanted an autograph/picture had gotten the chance to meet her. She was there for at least an hour and was amazingly gracious and nice to everyone.”"
