Watkinson is pleased to host a book signing and intimate meet and greet with Dr. Doe Hentschel, a current Watkinson trustee, who recently published “Look Ma, No Hands”. The book signing is free and open to the public at 4:30pm on Tuesday, April 18th in our Feringa Dining Hall. About her book, Dr. Hentschel describes, “It was the biggest job I had ever had, ten times bigger in fact! And I thought I was ready. Ten days after accepting the job offer, I smashed both my elbows in a bicycle accident.” Six months with both arms in casts presented incredible challenges and generated numerous stories that Dr. Hentschel, a natural storyteller, recounts in Look Ma, No Hands.
For more than four decades, Dr. Hentschel has developed transformative, creative, and pioneering continuing education programs and policies. As a strategist, collaborator, innovator, teacher, and facilitator, she has distinguished herself in multiple settings. A leader and visionary in the field of adult education, she was inducted into the International Adult and Continuing Education Hall of Fame in 2013.
The free book signing is from 4:30-5:15pm and Dr. Hentschel will read excerpts from her book at 4:45pm. Books can be purchased in advance on Amazon or at the signing for $20.
Watkinson School is Hartford’s oldest co-ed independent day school for grades 6-12/PG. Our next info session for prospective families is April 21 at 9am.
