Out of Step is the story of a poor little rich girl, an identical twin, and the daughter of the famous king and queen of ballroom dancing, Arthur and Kathryn Murray. As Arthur builds his dancing empire, shy and quiet Jane is swept along, coping with her mother’s suicide attempt, her father’s temper, and moves from coast to coast. Just as she comes into her own as a journalist and finally escapes from the limelight, she marries and serendipity thrusts her into the back seat once more as her husband, Henry Heimlich, becomes the darling of the medical world saving thousands with his manuever.
Visit the Main Library on Sunday, May 2 at 2:00 p.m. to hear Jane Heimlich speak about her own dance through life and her new autobiography. A book signing will follow her presentation. Copies of Out of Step will be available for purchase.
