An Evening with Yvette Manessis Corporon
The Metropolis of Boston Philoptochos invites you to attend an evening with Emmy award winning writer, producer, author, and Senior Producer of EXTRA: Yvette Manessis Corporon. Yvette will discuss her new book, Something Wonderful Happened: A Story of Survival and Courage in the Face of Evil, where she tells the story of how her grandmother and the people of Erikousa, a small Greek island, hid a Jewish family from the Nazis. 70 years later, Yvette tracks down the family's descendants, looking to her grandmother's stories of the past to make sense of the present.
This event will celebrate the memory of Fotini Tournas, the beloved sister of His Emminence Metropolitan Methodios and a generous supporter of our Philoptochos endeavors. All proceeds from this event will benefit the Metropolis of Boston Philoptochos charities.
Location: St. Demetrios Orthodox Church, 57 Brown Street, Weston, MA

At 6pm there will be a reception featuring a wine tasting and boutiques, followed by Yvette's presentation and a book signing at 7:30pm.
