The Ballerina of Auschwitz
Jan 31 @ 7:00 pm

Dr. Edith Eva Eger lives in La Jolla, CA.  Edith Eva Eger was taken to Auschwitz when she was only 16.  She was forced to dance for Dr Mengele, the man who had ordered her parents’ death. She became a clinical psychologist specializing in treating patients suffering from post traumatic stress disorder.  Dr Eger works with the US military, victims of domestic abuse, and is a motivational public speaker at schools and universities.

“The Choice: Embrace the Possible” is a powerful, moving memoir—and a practical guide to healing—written by Dr. Edith Eva Eger, an eminent psychologist whose own experiences as a Holocaust survivor help her treat patients and allow them to escape the prisons of their own minds.

Motherhood, Daughterhood and the Mess in Between
May 30 @ 11:00 am

Judy Batalion grew up in a house filled with endless piles of junk and layers of crumbs and dust; suffocated by tuna fish cans, old papers and magazines, swivel chairs, tea bags, clocks, cameras, printers, VHS tapes, ballpoint pens … obsessively gathered and stored by her mother, who was a hoarder. The first chance she had, she escaped the clutter to create a new identity—one made of order, regimen, and clean white walls. Until, one day, she found herself enmeshed in life’s biggest chaos:motherhood.

In her heartbreakingly funny memoir, WHITE WALLS, Batalion delves into her personal story of “stuff and survival,” and the daunting task of raising a daughter after her own dysfunctional childhood. Her talk is sure to spark conversation about the messiness of motherhood – and the indelible marks that mothers and daughters make on each other’s lives.
