The Friends of the Libraries invites you to an author presentation and book signing for Sandra Bornstein’s newly published “May This Be The Best Year Of Your Life: A Memoir.”  This February 9th event takes place at 10:00 am in the Eaton Humanities Building, Room 150, on the CU Boulder campus.

Sandra Bornstein is a local educator and writer.  She received a B.A. in history and Judaic Studies from the University of Illinois, an M.A. in Jewish Studies from the Spertus Institute of Jewish Studies and an M.A. in Elementary Education from the University of Colorado Boulder.  Bornstein’s research interests focus on American Jewish women.

In this memoir, Sandra describes how her peaceful and predictable life is forever changed when she leaves the comfort and security of Boulder County and relocates to Bangalore, India with all its unfamiliar customs, sights, sounds and smells.  And a monkey in the living room!  Her experiences ultimately enhance her resiliency, confidence, and passion for life.  This is the story of her journey of discovery and what she learns along the way as wife, mother, teacher, traveler, expat, and friend.

This event is free and open to the public.  Light refreshments will be served.

For additional information, or to become a member of CU Friends of the Libraries, phone 303-492-7511 or visit http://ucblibraries.colorado.edu/friends/activities.htm.

About Staff

They call me "NewsHound IV," because I'm a clever Finnegan, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was a rescue pup and glad to be on the scent!
