October 17, 2018 – Irene Miller — No Man’s Land
Irene Miller, a Holocaust survivor, will take you on a survival journey little written and known about. Yowill sleep in the winter under an open sky on the no man’s land; you will freeze in a Siberian labor camp where the bears come to your door front. In Uzbekistan, you will live on boiled grass or broiled onions, and shiver with malaria. You will spend years in orphanages. When this is over you will wonder how a child with this background grows up to become a positive, creative, accomplished woman with a joy of living and love to share.

November 28, 2018 – Cathy Cottone — Beginning Irish Genealogy
