Needless to say anything controversial usually will catch your audience. It will either have the people agreeing with your topic or have them offended, to the point where they want to tell you you're wrong, either way you will have their attention. I recommend that you bring up the Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown. Everyone seems to have an opinion about this book, good or bad. You could give a speech on how one fiction book has shook the Catholic Church, or how Dan Brown deceives people by intertwining fiction and fact. Anyway you look at it, if your speech has to do with the Da Vinci Code, and how you don't believe in it, or how you do believe in it, it will keep your audience's attention. How informed your audience will be depends on how well you present your speech.
