Timeless Dance
A Story of Change and Loss

Wednesday, October 10, 7pm

Karen Shiffman Lateiner and her family lived in Montclair for nearly thirty years before she and her husband retired to travel the country by motorhome before settling in Phoenix, AZ.  Her memoir Timeless Dance: A Story of Change and Loss takes you on her compelling journey to understand the gender transition of her remarkable son, fully embrace the woman he becomes and, just two years later, grapple with her child’s untimely death. Informed by her Jewish roots, the author speaks frankly of her experiences of family, joy, death, grief, gender, and the power of the human spirit. Join her on an unusual tour of a mother’s mind as she reflects on her own history in coping with her child’s transition and death. At a time when transgender issues were still hidden, she and her family educate themselves and their communities, turning their grief to advocacy. More than a memoir, this story of change and loss is a tribute to her child’s legacy as a writer and computer software developer, and to the love and support of family and friends.
