Book Signing: The Encore Author Charity Tillemann-Dick with NPR’s Scott Simon

Thursday, October 5, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Scott Simon, host of NPR Weekend Edition, sits down with Charity Tillemann-Dick to speak about her autobiographical book, The Encore, the story of her career as an opera singer, who received not one but two double lung transplants and went from literally struggling to draw a single breath to singing at the most prestigious venues in the world. Tillemann-Dick is a longtime Capitol Hill resident, and her grandfather was former Congressman Tom Lantos.

Simon’s weekly show, Weekend Edition Saturday, has been called by the Washington Post, “the most literate, witty, moving, and just plain interesting news show on any dial,” and by Brett Martin of Time-Out New York “the most eclectic, intelligent two hours of broadcasting on the airwaves.” He has won every major award in broadcasting, including the Peabody, the Emmy, the Columbia-DuPont, the Ohio State Award, the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award, and the Sidney Hillman Award.
The Encore is available for advance sales with a $30 ticket.
