After: The Obligation of Beauty

After: The Obligation of Beauty

Mindy Weisel | Artist, Author & Speaker

Memoir

This compelling and candid memoir by Mindy Weisel, an internationally acclaimed artist and author, traces her search to find beauty in her life, which began as a child born in the Bergen-Belsen Displaced Person’s Camp to parents who had survived the Auschwitz concentration camp. This is not her parents’ story, rather, it is a courageous and honest portrait of her struggle to understand the black hole she was born into. Her successful journey in becoming an artist with her own voice, and an unshakable will to live with beauty, is most inspiring.

Sunlight and Shadows: Writers in the South of France

Sunlight and Shadows: Writers in the South of France

Julia Carter | Author

Literary Biographies.

Jean Cocteau. F. Scott Fitzgerald. Aldous Huxley. Katherine Mansfield. Somerset Maugham. Edith Wharton. The French Riviera has long been a setting for wealth and romance but between the wars it was also the home for writers from all over the world. For many it was a cheap place to live well; for others the climate was good for their health; while some were fleeing romance, addiction, and even prosecution. They all found a haven of sunlight and beauty and they all found the space to live in their imaginations and write their masterpieces – but what terrible secrets did they bring with them? Sunlight and Shadows explores the lives and works of these six best-selling twentieth century writers who lived, loved and wrote in the South of France.
