Saving the Light at Chartres, Reading Love, Prepping for College Admissions

June 11, 2020

Wednesdays with Writers continue with author Victor Pollak and his book, Saving the Light at Chartres: How the Great Cathedral and its Stained-Glass Treasures Were Rescued during World War II . The book describes the rescue of the cathedral’s famous stained-glass windows as the war began and the career of Welborn B. Griffith, Jr., the DSC-awarded American Army Colonel who is credited with having saved the cathedral in August 1944 a few hours before his death, a courageous man little known to Americans but honored annually by the citizens of Chartres.

A mission of Be the Star You Are!® charity is to increase literacy and encourage the love of books. What a perfect time to start a family book club and involve the kids in a pastime that will benefit them forever. Cynthia Brian provides a few tips on how to make reading fun and reads the chapter, The Gift of Reading from Be the Star You Are! for Teens.

With the impact of Covid-19, young people are confused on how the admission process will be. Counselors are confused, there are online testing glitches, and it’s challenging to plan. Stay optimistic and keep conducting online research to keep informed.

Bio: Victor A. Pollak, an attorney in private practice for more than thirty years, has received continuing professional recognition. He was born in Illinois to a father who had emigrated from Austria in 1938 and a mother who had grown up in Detroit as one of seven daughters of Hungarian immigrants. As a boy in the 1950s, Pollak lived for a year in Vienna with his parents, brother and sister. He graduated from Antioch College, Loyola University Chicago School of Law, and Pacific University (MFA in Writing). He has traveled widely in Europe, including France. As a lawyer in Chicago, he also co-chaired a practice group that opened American law offices in Eastern Europe, including Warsaw (1990) and Prague (1991). He divides his time between Tucson and Salt Lake City. http://victorpollak.net
