Join us this month as we review The Girl From Berlin, by Ronald Balson. Ada Baumgarten was born in Berlin in 1918, at the end of the war. The daughter of an accomplished first-chair violinist in the prestigious Berlin Philharmonic, and herself a violin prodigy, Ada’s life was full of the rich culture of Berlin’s interwar society.

This event will take place through a video conference call. Registration is not required.  We welcome anyone to join us at any time. But, if this is your first time with us, we ask that you kindly let Trina Reinach, [email protected], know that you will be attending (by providing your email address) so that we can be sure you receive our correspondences.
