About the Event
We are pleased to invite you to a very special Grandparents Day event: Compositions of Life Virtual Adventure featuring 90-year-old Holocaust survivor Rose Schindler, award-winning author and journalist Jennifer Steil, and renowned Hollywood musician Terry Wollman.
Join the Zoom* to “meet” these creative artists and experience their unique, devastating, inspiring, and ultimately beautiful, compositions of life. As you relax in the comfort of your own home, allow our three speakers to share their powerful stories:
Rose Schindler’s composition of life was nearly destroyed by an evil force that took everything away from her at a young age: her family, her friends, her home, her belongings, and her innocence. Yet, despite this devastating beginning, together with Max, the love of her life and another Holocaust survivor, Rose rewrote her life’s story to show the world that in the end, love will prevail, but also to remind us all that we are NEVER TO FORGET!
Jennifer Steil’s composition shares a little known story of Holocaust survivors who are are forced to flee to South America, but remain haunted by the music that can no longer be their livelihood.
Terry Wollman’s compositions of life are created through music and allow him to express artistry with joy and abandon, to work without compromise for what you believe in, and to be selfish with your discipline and selfless in your performance, but ultimately to have fun.
Celebrate Grandparent’s Day with three very special people who offer an important reminder why, regardless of our circumstances, we are ultimately the author of our own unique Composition of Life. Share their stories, and then sit back and relax, because you are in for another treat, as Terry Wollman performs a live 20 minute mini-concert of his renowned music. If you are unhappy about the composition of your life, meeting these three amazing speakers will inspire you to rewrite your own story.
This Virtual Adventure was designed not only to support three creative artists whose book tours and events were cancelled due to COVID-19, but also to provide readers with our signature Adventures by the Book® multi-sensorial experience that brings literature to life in exciting and unique ways.
