Ida - The Power of an Alter-Ego

Susan best known as her alter ego, Ida, is often called the funniest woman in Maine. In this humorous and engaging talk, Susan will reveal the inspiration for Ida, and what has kept their relationship fresh after 25 years, six plays, two books, and 12 years of weekly blogs. She will also examine the lessons she’s learned from Ida, and what having an alter ego has taught her about writing, life, and the healing power of laughter.

Susan was selected by Portland Magazine, as one of the “Ten Most Intriguing People in Maine”! In May of 2019, she was inducted into the Franco-American Hall of Fame honoring her body of work and promotion of Franco-American cultural identity. She continues to be a leader in bringing a female voice to New England storytelling and humor, sharing her performance with audiences statewide and beyond. You can see her TEDxPortsmouth talk at
