Virtual Author Event on Zoom

 

A powerful and luminous story of grief and coming-of-age and a beautiful tribute to the relationship between a father and daughter.  Alexandra “Al” Silber seems to have everything: brilliance, beauty, and talent in spades. But when her beloved father dies after a decade-long battle with cancer when she is just a teenager, it feels like the end of everything. Lost in grief, Al and her mother hardly know where to begin with the rest of their lives.  Told with raw passion, candor and wit, White Hot Grief Parade is an ode to the restorative power of family and friendship—and the unbreakable bond, even in death, between father and daughter.

 

Alexan­dra Sil­ber’s After Anatevka is her first book, now available in paperback. She is an award-winning actress and singer who starred most recent­ly as Tzei­t­el in the Broad­way revival of Fid­dler on the Roof and Hodel in the same show in London’s West End. Her oth­er cred­its include Mas­ter Class Arling­tonCarouselKiss Me Kate, and Hel­lo Again. She lives in New York.

This event is presented in collaboration with the the Jewish Book Council. Alexandra will present her book and answer questions. To purchase books in advance, our bookstore partners online: Bookworks (4022 Rio Grande Blvd NW) and Page 1 Books (5850 Eubank Blvd NE). 

Tickets are $8 for JCC Members and $10 for Non-Members.

Upon registering, you will be sent a link for the Zoom event.
