Survival itself was truly a miracle for young Samuel Heider who is now 95 and a Miami Valley resident. Forced to leave the idyllic fruit farm owned by his Jewish family in Poland during WWII, he was sent along with other family members to the Bialobrzegi ghetto. That confinement was just the beginning of a string of near-death experiences which he will recount for the public.
Join us to hear this remarkable man recount his life. This program is based on Heider's memoir of the same name written with local author Stevie Ann Kremer. The program is free, but registration is required to ensure adequate seating.

The public is invited to meet Liz Philosophos Cooper, Jane Austen Society of North America (JASNA) President, as she presents Jane Austen: Working Woman. Miss Austen was a working woman and a dedicated professional writer. Cooper's illustrated talk will explore Austen's involvement in the business side of publishing her novels during a time of rampant financial instability. The Austen family were active participants in both war and finance and these two sectors intertwined in the story of her writing and publishing.
A cream tea will be served (compliments of the Dayton Chapter and the Library) and Jane Austen Books will be on hand to present exciting plans for the 2020 Annual General Meeting in Cleveland.
Attendees are encouraged to dress as Miss Austen would (in period costume) and registration is required to ensure sufficient refreshments (and seating). The event is open to all interested in the works of Jane Austen, author of six novels including Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, and Emma.
Liz Philosophos Cooper became a second-generation JASNA member in 1992 and has actively devoted many years of service to the organization, most recently as Vice-President for regions. She is a contributing writer to Jane Austen's Regency World and co-edits the Wisconsin Region's A Year With Jane Austen calendar.
