Join us for a virtual book discussion with Author, Irene Butter.  Irene was our featured speaker on International Women's Day March 8, 2022.   Register by May 10, 2022. A link to this session will be sent a day prior to the event.  

Irene Butter spent a part of her childhood in Nazi-controlled concentration camps, where she survived horrible conditions and tragedies. She tells her story on behalf of the six million other Jews who have been permanently silenced. Irene's account celebrates the exercising of empathy for others in even the most inhumane conditions, a relevant message in an age where similar hatreds and discrimination rise once again.

Irene has shared the stage with peacemakers such as the Dalai Lama, Desmond Tutu, and Elie Wiesel. She is a well-known peace activist, Holocaust survivor, and Professor Emerita of Public Health at the University of Michigan.
