We are is pleased to welcome best-selling investigative journalist and author Isabel Vincent to speak about her newest book, Overture of Hope: Two Sisters’ Daring Plan That Saved Opera’s Jewish Stars from the Third Reich. Utilizing her background as a journalist, Vincent delves into pre–World War II history to tell the incredible story of heroic sisters Ida and Louise Cook. Using their passion for opera, the sisters conceive a plan to spirit dozens of Jewish stars and others working for German and Austrian opera houses to England, saving them from a horrific fate under the Nazis. Vividly told with suspense, hope, and wonder, this singular tale reveals new details of the brave sisters and their successful rescue mission that not only saved dozens of lives but preserved the opera they loved for another generation. Vincent will be joined by New York Post senior reporter, Dana Kennedy, who will interview the author. The evening will conclude with a book signing.
