“Violins of Hope” Book Talk and Signing, featuring award-winning author Dr. James E. Grymes

Sunday, September 17, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Musicologist James A. Grymes will discuss his book, “Violins of Hope: Instruments of Hope and Liberation in Mankind’s Darkest Hour.” A stirring testament to the strength of the human spirit and the power of music, “Violins of Hope” tells the remarkable stories of violins played by Jewish musicians during the Holocaust, and of Amnon Weinstein, the Israeli violin maker who brings these inspirational instruments back to life. “Violins of Hope” was the winner of the 2014 National Jewish Book Award in the Holocaust category.
