Playing with Fire

Join Lafayette resident Aileen Bennet to change your perspective and explore your creative side. This session will use both your left and right brain with some fun, hands-on activities that will remind you why you love promoting Louisiana!


Aileen Bennett is a clever thinking, client pleasing, quirky-as-they-come illustrator, writer and professional speaker. She is originally from London, England and has lived in Louisiana for 20 years. She is the author of a weekly column in The Advocate, and her new book “A Little Book About Fire” came out in September. 

Aileen lives very happily with a kindhearted, sarcastic Cajun, and a large white dog called Mr. Blue. She has an insatiable curiosity, bulletproof enthusiasm, and a slight obsession with surfing.
