SunsetJudith Petres Balogh, Sunset
Saturday February 17, 1-3pm
Sunset is the fifth book by former Aurora/Shaker Heights resident Judith Petres Balogh. The author was an educator and administrator in the US Department of Defense Dependents Schools (DODDS) in Germany, where she taught classes for the gifted children. After working a few years as school administrator, early retirement followed. She and her husband now live in Ohio and in Hungary, where they converted a "disaster area" into a lovely home (described in This Old House By The Lake).  The Hungarian Academy of Arts and Science in Cleveland awarded her book The Countess and Her Daughter a medal for outstanding literary efforts.  She is pleased to introduce her new novel Sunset, about women bound by deep friendship, ignoring the burdens of age and of life accidents, defying loneliness and arthritis, and each in her own, unique way giving new meaning to life.
