Fanny Starr: Nevertheless, We Persisted: 48 Voices of Defiance, Strength, and Courage THURSDAY, December 6; 7pm at Tattered Cover Colfax

ABOUT THE EVENT: Author and Holocaust survivor, Fanny Starr, will present and sign Nevertheless, We Persisted: 48 Voices of Defiance, Strength, and Courage. This is a powerful collection of essays from actors, activists, athletes, politicians, musicians, writers, and teens, each writing about a time in their youth when they were held back because of their race, gender, or sexual identity, but persisted. Holocaust survivor Fanny Starr tells of her harrowing time in Auschwitz, where she watched her family disappear, one by one. What made them rise up through the hate? What made them overcome the obstacles of their childhood to achieve extraordinary success? How did they break out of society's limited view of who they are and find their way to the beautiful and hard-won lives they live today? With a foreword by Minnesota senator and up-and-coming Democratic party leader Amy Klobuchar, these essays share deeply personal stories of resilience, faith, love, and, yes, persistence.

Andrea Wang: Magic Ramen: The Story of Momofuku Ando SATURDAY, March 9; 2pm at Tattered Cover Aspen Grove

ABOUT THE EVENT: Presentation, activity and booksigning. Inspiration struck when Momofuku Ando spotted the long lines for a simple bowl of ramen following World War II. Magic Ramen tells the true story behind the creation of one of the world's most popular foods. Every day, Momofuku Ando would retire to his lab--a little shed in his backyard. For years, he'd dreamed about making a new kind of ramen noodle soup that was quick, convenient, and tasty for the hungry people he'd seen in line for a bowl on the black market following World War II. Peace follows from a full stomach, he believed. Day after day, Ando experimented. Night after night, he failed. But Ando kept experimenting. With persistence, creativity, and a little inspiration, Ando succeeded. This is the true story behind one of the world's most popular foods.
