30 March, 2017 at 18:30.




Please come to the next Harvard Author’s event which will feature three amazing, autobiographical accounts by Harvard Alumni. The authors will each talk about the challenges, motivation and satisfaction they achieved in writing about personal struggles.


  • Tom Kearney  who wrote

Death, Life and the East German Ladies’ Swimming Team – about being hit by a London bus on Oxford street and recovering from a near-death coma to take on the Mayor of London and learning how to swim outdoors all year-round.



  • Jennifer Bao Yu "Precious Jade" Jue-Steuck who wrote

Inspiration Ice Cream: Jardin de Glace, the story of how an orphan girl's passion for ice cream led to a search around the world to create the first global volunteer group created by and for the more than 150,000 adopted Chinese children growing up in 26 countries.


  • Marti Leimbach who wrote: Daniel Isn't Talking, although fiction, contains some autobiographical information derived from her real-life experience as a mother of an autistic child. She is now trying to write a non-fiction account and can discuss the difference between the two approaches.

Skip – who was scheduled to speak – suffered a severe medical incident and cannot travel.  He deeply regrets that he cannot take part.



NOTE! Change of Venue!  Now being held at The Library, 117 St. Martin’s Lane,
