Burke to speak at Union County College Alumni Association Author Series

Thursday, September 24, 2015
The Union County College Alumni Association will be hosting an Author Series Event on Sunday, October 4, 2015, at 2 p.m. in the Roy Smith Theater at the Cranford Campus. Guest Speaker will be author Nancy Burke, and she will discuss her most recently published book, If I Could Paint the Moon Black. Admission is free and all are welcome to attend.
If I Could Paint the Moon Black is the true story of an Estonian childhood interrupted first by Russian, and then German occupation, during World War II. The book brings us back to World War II Europe and reminds us of the power of tenacity and courage in the face of hardship. The trials and tribulations experienced by the main character are still relevant to all today, no matter if you have lived here for generations or have just recently arrived on the “land of the free.”
Author Nancy Burke holds an MFA in creative writing from Rutgers University and a BA in anthropology from Montclair State University. She works full-time in marketing and business development for the Industry-Business Institute at Union County College.

Following the presentation, there will be a chance to chat with the author, light refreshments, and for those interested, the opportunity to purchase a signed copy of the book.
Admission to the event is free, however space is limited, so those interested in attending are encouraged to email slordi@comcast.net to reserve a seat. Students are welcome and encouraged to attend.
