The next Women’s Club meeting will be on Jan 13th at noon. We will be having lunch together and discussing the book Witness by Ruth Gruber.
Ruth Gruber, a foreign correspondent for the New York Herald Tribune, writes about what she saw and shows us through her haunting and life-affirming photographs, taken on each of her assignments; the worlds, the landscapes, the people, the courage, the hope, the life she witnessed, up close in the Siberian Gulag of the 1930’s.
Ruth Gruber is a truly fascinating woman. Born in 1911 she was the youngest person in the world to earn a Ph.D. at the age of 20. Ahead of Time is a wonderful documentary about her life. You can view the trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M8v_PknZrsc
