Holocaust Remembrance Day Author Visit: The Brave Cyclist with Amalia Hoffman
Saturday, January 27th
Location: Galaxy Hall
This program is aimed at youth ages 8 and up as well as their families.
We invite you to join librarian Erica Roberts and award-winning author Amalia Hoffman in discussion of her Junior Library Guild and Gold Selection book, The Brave Cyclist: A True Story of a Holocaust Hero.
Gino Bartali’s life provides an inspiring story that merges sports and acts of heroism. Ms. Hoffman will share her personal journey and inspiration in writing her book and talk about how Gino Bartali's heroic acts during the Holocaust can inspire us to achieve social justice and fight antisemitism, racism and bullying. Come find out what “Tikun Olam” means and discuss individuals who fought against racism, discrimination, antisemitism, bigotry and bullying – and how each one of us can contribute to fighting these injustices and making the world a better place!
There will be the opportunity to view pictures from the collection of Gino Bartali’s granddaughter as part of the presentation; don’t miss out!
This program is made possible by the generous support of the White Plains Library Foundation.
