Leaving a Living Legacy to your grandchildren

Learn how to teach your grandchildren their roots and family history. Kesselman will also discuss how to share your own life’s lessons and wisdom with your grandchildren and teach them about self confidence, self respect, and much more.

The letters in this book follow one of three distinct themes: America 80 years ago, the author’s life and times, and ideas to assist in their personal development. The first allows his grandchildren to understand and appreciate the very different America in which he grew up. The second tells them who he was and how he came to be who he is today. The last group of letters makes them aware of productive personality traits, communication skills, and mind set that will facilitate all their endeavors throughout their lives.

It is truly a primer for life for you and your family.

Books are available on Amazon or at this signing event.

Part 1: Wednesday, June 15. Presented by Dr. Jonathan Rose. Today the mass media is trusted by just 40 percent of Americans—and only 11 percent of those aged 18 to 24. Newspapers, newsmagazines, and network news broadcasts are dying. Younger readers especially get their news by scanning a host of blogs and websites, all of which offer very different versions of reality, none of which carry any real authority. Jonathan Rose, an expert in the history of reading, shows that this skepticism is not new: in fact it is much older than newspapers themselves. He explains why readers throughout history have distrusted what they read, and he traces denunciations of what we now call the “lamestream media” all the way back to Socrates.

Part 2: Wednesday, July 20. Even though New Jersey is one of the smallest states, it’s packed with tons of history. This class will examine some of the sites and events that put our state on the map. From deserted villages, a castle, the country’s oldest seaside hotel, canals, railroads, America’s first coast-to-coast highway, and “the trial of the century,” our little state has made its mark.

Part 3: Wednesday, August 24. An uncle and a niece, Solomon and Peggy Guggenheim separately began collecting “modern” art in the mid-twentieth century and wound up changing the art world forever. They not only each established museums, they created the first artistic “brand.” Today cities all over the world want to replicate the “miracle of Bilbao” and have their very own Guggenheim. Come learn their incredible story.
