‘Henry’: A Polish swimmer’s true story of friendship from Auschwitz to America
6:30 p.m. Oct. 10 in the Roadrunner Room
In award-winning author Katrina Shawver’s new biography, Henry Zguda relates his life as a champion swimmer, interrupted by three years imprisoned in Auschwitz and Buchenwald as a Polish political prisoner. “Henry” is the story of a strong young man, who survives by his wits, humor, friends, and a healthy dose of luck — a path of resiliency and power of connection as relevant today, as it was in World War II. Books will be available for purchase and signing at the event. For more information, call 623-930-3844.
 
Board in the library: tabletop games for adults
