Worcester Womens History Project presents its 14th annual WOMEN IN PRINT program with three local authors, Stacy Amaral, Thea Aschkenase, and Sharon Healy-Yang, Ph.D.

Amaral authored Sharing Voices: Getting from There to Here; Aschkenase authored Remembering: A Holocaust Survivor Shares Her Life; and Healy-Yang authored Bait and Switch (A Jessica Minton Mystery Book 1). There will be book signings and refreshments following the program. All are welcome.

Stacy Amaral said, The people represented in Sharing Voices are men and women, very young to very old, black, white, Latino and Asian  all with varying degrees of education, careers and interests. Amaral said the book could be a great tool to teach people not only about their past, but others pasts and experiences. Perhaps, through a bit of understanding, the stories could even bring people closer together.

About Thea Aschkenase: This is the heartfelt account of Thea Aschkenase, who survived the death camps and went on to make loving contributions to her family, her community and her new country. Thea chronicles her happy childhood days in Munich, her teenage years in Italy hiding from the Nazis, her internment at Auschwitz, her voyage to find a home in Israel and her coming to the USA to raise her family, eventually becoming a proud US citizen. Thea Aschkenase is a 2007 graduate of Worcester State University having earned a degree in Urban Studies.

Sharon Healy-Yang, Ph.D. said, Im a huge fan of films and books created during the 1930s-50s, with their blend of sharp wit, humor, and dark suspense. That passion inspired me to write Bait and Switch, a mystery/romance set in 1943. My novel features a sharp, witty, imaginative female lead whos ripe for a little romance, even if it is mixed in with espionage, deception, and murder." Sharon Healy-Yang, Ph.D. is a Professor of English at Worcester State University.
