The Choice: Embrace the Possible

Dr. Edith Eva Eger

Edith Eger was 16 years old when the Nazis came to her hometown in Hungary and took her Jewish family to Auschwitz. Her parents were sent to the gas chamber, but Joseph Mengele demanded that Edie dance a waltz to “The Blue Danube” and rewarded her with a loaf of bread. Edie and her sister managed to survive until the American troops liberated the camps in 1945. The Choice weaves 89-year-old Edith’s Holocaust experience with her work as a psychologist. Her patients and their stories show how people can choose to escape the prisons they construct in their minds to ultimately find freedom and joy.

Sargent's Women: Four Lives Behind the Canvas

Donna M. Lucey

Lucey shares the lives of four high-society women of the Gilded Age who were immortalized by American portrait artist John Singer Sargent (1856-1925). Elsie Palmer, the daughter of a rich railroad businessman, moved back to Colorado Springs from England after her mother’s early death. Heiress Elizabeth Chanler fell scandalously in love with her best friend’s husband. Lucia Fairchild (whose beautiful sister Sally was painted by Sargent) was so inspired by his art that she pursued a lifelong painting career. Isabella Stewart Gardner became the most prominent art collector of her time, leaving her collection—including Sargent's work—in her own museum.
