Ongoing “Author Talks” / Presentations
We share humorous stories and experiences of our memories of the 1940s, 1950s, and early 1960s, growing up as first-generation Americans in a tenement railroad flat on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, with our Czech-German (immigrant) family of seven. Our award-winning books will be available for purchase and signings. (Our memoir is in its fourth consecutive year as required reading for college freshmen in classes called “The Immigration Experience in New York City” on various New York campuses.) Remember, we also have a new LIVE multimedia interactive eBook available only through Amazon.com. We give multimedia presentations, full of HUMOR, WISDOM, and FRANK TALK, on: “A Time to Remember—Looking Back to Yesteryear” (Growing Up in the 1940s-1960s in New York City”). Book us as guests for your next group event or program! We also give presentations on “Insight into Warren Buffett and the Berkshire Hathaway Company and its Annual Shareholders Meeting,” including “Searching for and Finding Missing Money.” Contact us now to speak to your organization/group for a fun time to be had by all! We are available to present anywhere in the United States.
