The summer season is  ahead and normally our presentations and public speaking events would be drying up.  Not this year!  18 months after the publication of my debut biography Escaping Hitler: A Jewish Boy’s Quest for Freedom and His Future (Pen and Sword Books 2016 & Skyhorse Publications New York, 2017), our diary has a further six engagements to September, four in the autumn and three in 2018!  This is mainly because Joe is so compelling when at, nearly 93, he tells his own story to audiences all over Norfolk.  For those who have not yet seen this film, do take a look and you will see what I mean!  For details of how to buy your signed copy direct from the author, do look at the menu section of this blog.

 

Escaping Hitler Lecture Tour rumbles on

Busy times for both author and subject of Joe Stirling’s biography Escaping Hitler.  Last week found us talking to Norwich Community History Club, The Out and About Club in Norwich, Walsingham History Society (really out in the sticks!) and the Mercedes Benz Owners’ Club at the swanky Dunston Hall Hotel.  This morning (it’s Tuesday so it must be The Maid’s Head Hotel) I flew solo at the East Anglia Women Networking Group (See photos below) Thursday evening both of us will be addressing Brooke Women’s Institute, culminating on Saturday with an exhibition stand at the Lions Clubs International District 105EA Convention at Stoke by Nayland Hotel and Country Club near Colchester.  We hope to meet many of Joe’s old Lion colleagues and younger ones too, who may have an interest in the history of this worldwide fundraising organisation.  It is a real experience taking Joe’s story to so many people, long may it continue.  Updates later….

ESCAPING HITLER SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS COMING IN FAST!

Even with a further ten weeks or so to publication, the word is out there and people want to hear the story of Joe Stirling’s remarkable life and how my debut biography Escaping Hitler: A Jewish Boy’s Quest for Freedom and His Future (with foreword by Shirley Williams) came about.   I now have nine speaking engagements in the diary including Cringleford Historical Society, Old Catton, Brooke and Norwich Lunchtime Women’s Institutes, Wymondham Heritage Society, the Out and About Club in Norwich, Mid Norfolk Family History Society, East Anglia Women Networking Group and, of course, Nickenich in the Rhineland on 13th May.  I will be brushing up my public speaking skills in readiness, I certainly am not short of enthusiasm!

Good advice!
