Seal Beach author publishes new book

“Poignant Memories,” a new book by Eve Turkheimer, has been released by Dorrance Publishing.

Getting through old age does not only denote the number of years one spent on Earth, but most importantly, it represents a person’s countless heartrending reminiscences and how they touch and make a change for others.

In “Poignant Memories,” Turkheimer retells the most touching stories in her more than 70 years of existence.

Her experience at age 9, participating in a life-saving Kindertransport to London, allows her to explore the world and other people, including her foster family, who forever became a formative part of her life.

Kindertransport children were refugees, mostly Jewish, who found fosterhomes in the United Kingdom prior to the start of World War II.

Turkheimer’s encounters with death, illness and pain inspired her to pass down all she has learned, in addition to her memoirs, to her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, as well as a diverse and potentially captive reader audience.

“ Poignant Memories” is a 200-page paperback with a retail price of $19.  The ISBN is 978-1-4349-0691-5.

It was published by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc. of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
