Book Talk & Signing: Charity Tillemann-Dick - The Encore

Nov 9, 2017

Acclaimed opera singer Charity Tillemann-Dick will discuss and sign her memoir The Encore: A Memoir in Three Acts ($26.00 Atria Books). Tillemann-Dick received not one but two double lung transplants and went from struggling to draw a single breath to singing at the most prestigious venues in the world.


Weaving Charity's extraordinary tale of triumph with those of opera's greatest heroines, The Encore illuminates the indomitable human spirit. It's the story of confronting devastating challenges with love: the intimate love of a mother for her daughter, a man for a woman, a doctor for her craft, and a singer for her music. Ultimately, grace from God and strangers enabled the work of love to save one young woman's breath and allowed her to reclaim her life.
