Meet UUCA member and retired physician



Signing copies of her new book,

Shrapnel in the Piano,


on SUNDAY, DECEMBER 3, between and after services

at the UUCA Bookstore


In her compelling memoir, Dr. Nahmias recounts her childhood experiences growing up in Germany during World War II. This is a story of a young girl’s remarkable courage, optimism, and perseverance in the face of adversity, as she and her family use their imagination and resourcefulness to survive.


Filled with photographs and personal letters, Shrapnel in the Piano makes a strong case for the value of exploring the past. As one reviewer noted, “It made me wonder how I would cope if we were caught in a regime change to a fascist dictatorship and then a horrendous war.”


Dr. Nahmias will also be autographing copies of the endearing and colorful children’s book that she wrote and illustrated during her own childhood.


Shrapnel in the Piano sells for a very reasonable $10 in paperback, with a large portion of the proceeds donated to UUCA.
