On Wednesday, December 2, 2020 at 7:00pm ET the Saratoga Book Festival will host an online virtual discussion between Fred Guttenberg, author of FIND THE HELPERS, and psychologist and Skidmore Professor, Sheldon Solomon. The two will explore Guttenberg’s experience and resilience following the loss of his daughter Jaime in the school shooting at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas HS in Parkland, FL on February 14, 2018 where 34 people were shot--just four months after Guttenberg lost his brother Michael, aged 50, to the pancreatic cancer Michael contracted after he was exposed to toxic chemicals, debris and dust following the terror attack on the World Trade Center in NYC in 2001.
