Best-selling author Jenna Blum will speak at The Roth Family Jewish Community Center in Maitland as part of the JCC Cultural Arts Department’s Visiting Author Series on August 27, 2019.
Blum, who rose to prominence with 2004’s Holocaust-themed novel Those Who Save Us, will be in Maitland next month to discuss her latest work, The Lost Family – just released in paperback – which last year was named a summer must-read by The Jewish Journal, JewishBoston.com and Detroit Jewish News.
Prior to her debut as a novelist, Blum spent four years documenting the stories of Holocaust survivors as an interviewer for Steven Spielberg’s Shoah Foundation at the University of Southern California.
With The Lost Family, Blum again explores themes related to the Holocaust in a masterfully crafted story that takes the reader on a journey that explores the depths of love and loss.
Blum’s talk will also serve as the kickoff to the Jewish Federation of Greater Orlando Women’s Division Book Club. The Federation is co-sponsoring Blum’s appearance with The Roth Family JCC.
Tickets are available for purchase in three tiers:
- $36 for a VIP reception with Blum, reserved seating for Blum’s discussion and a copy of The Lost Family.
- $25 for general admission seating and a copy of The Lost Family.
- $10 for general admission seating only.
Those who purchase ticket/book bundles can pick up their books locally immediately after purchase so that they have ample time to read them before Blum’s appearance on Aug. 27. Blum will speak at 7pm, and will sign books after the program.
