The authors will speak about their books at the meeting - co-sponsored by Temple Adat Elohim - which will begin at 1.30pm at the congregation, 2420 E. Hillcrest Drive, Thousand Oaks. There is no admission charge.
Speaking will be:
-- Warren Blatt is one of the original authors who wrote a book on techniques and resources for doing Jewish genealogy, "Getting Started in Jewish Genealogy."
-- Werner Frank researched his multi-generational family history on the German-Jewish experience going back 800 years including the impact of the Holocaust: "Legacy: The Saga of a German-Jewish Family Over Time and Circumstance."
-- Erica Miller, PhD takes us from her childhood in Romania, to life under a brutal Nazi regime, emigration to Israel, and eventual emergence as a dedicated mental health professional in America: "The Dr.Erica Miller Story: From Trauma to Triumph."
-- Helene Rosen created a family book for her children with copies of family photographs. Anyone can use this technique for their family photographs: "Our Family in Pictures."
-- Mark Abbott Stern wrote a biography of US colonial Jewish businessman - David Franks - from his beginnings in a prominent Jewish family to his trials for treason and exile in the post-Revolutionary period: "David Franks; Colonial Merchant."
Dr. Miller will hold a book signing at the meeting's end (cash and checks only).
