William Daniels, There I Go Again
Sep 7 @ 7:30 pm

William Daniels is an enigma, a rare chameleon who has enjoyed massive success both in Hollywood and on Broadway and been embraced by fans of successive generations. Few of his peers inspire the fervor with which buffs celebrate his most iconic roles, among them George Feeny in Boy Meets World, KITT in Knight Rider, Dr. Mark Craig in St. Elsewhere, and John Adams in the play and film 1776.

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.
