Local Author Liz Fox to Speak at the Boulder JCC

First-time Boulder author Liz Fox will talk about her new book, “We Are Going To Be Lucky”, at Lunch & Learn on Thursday, September 13, presented by ACE at the J (Arts, Culture & Education) and co-sponsored by Hadassah. The program will begin at 12 noon and includes lunch.

Liz’s book, a WWII love story, contains excerpts from over 2,500 letters her parents wrote daily to each other, from 1943-1946, while her father was in training and then in combat. Liz painstakingly sifted through the huge jumble of her parents’ hand-written letters, which had been stored away in a large cardboard box, in order to tell their heartwarming and historically significant story.

Cost is $15 in advance and $18 at the door. The included lunch is Kosher sensitive. A Kosher meal may be available upon request 48 hours prior to the program. For reservations and any questions, please contact Jodi Zicklin at 720-749-2531 or jodi@boulderjcc.org.
