Concordia College’s Books & Coffee Series Presents Emmy Award-Winning Writer Yvette Manessis Corporon Thursday, February 8 PDF Print Email

By Joyce S. Kennedy, Senior Director of Community Relations, Concordia College


Jan. 31, 2018:  Emmy Award-winning writer, producer, and author Yvette Manessis Corporon will be at Concordia College on Thursday, February 8, to discuss her new book, Something Beautiful Happened: A Story of Survival and Courage in the Face of Evil.

The book is a family memoir that begins on a small Greek island during World War II when the author’s grandmother – with the help of every resident of the island – shielded a Jewish family from the Nazi occupation.

Intrigued by the stories she heard as a child, Yvette Manessis Corporon set out to track down the descendants of the family that was saved. In a twist of tragic irony, the author is forced to draw upon the lessons she learns from these survivors when members of her own family become the victims of an anti-Semitic attack.

Yvette Manessis Corporon will present her fascinating story in Concordia College’s Sommer Center for Worship and the Performing Arts at 7:00 pm.

The popular Books & Coffee series is free and open to the public. Please register at https://yvettecorporon.eventbrite.com

Bronxville Public Library

The Bronxville Public Library traces its origins back to 1875, when it was a small lending library housed in a room attached to the “Bronxville Model School.” The Library was officially chartered in 1906 and moved into the Village Hall Building. The needs of the library grew with the town and, in 1942, a new standalone building was erected, which is where the Library is today. Over the years, the Library was renovated and expanded to meet the needs of the community.

The Library has wonderful resources for adults and children and offers a comfortable and relaxing environment. The Library also houses a fine art collection, consisting principally of Bronxville painters and sculptors.

The Library offers special events, art exhibitions, and programs for adults, young adults and children.  All events are open to the public, unless otherwise indicated.
