Join Max Friedman, a former PBS employee and a former publicist for Bill Moyers Journal, this Saturday, May 13, 2023! Max sits down with Off The Shelf Books' host, Denise Turney, to discuss his book "Painful Joy". The book is based in-part, on his parents, Polish Holocaust survivors who lost everyone in their families during the war, survived the camps and then met and married in Sweden. As is his personality, Max's writing is engaging, insightful and entertaining. 

Prior to writing "Painful Joy", Max authored two memoirs: one of Charles A. Heimbold, Jr., a retired pharmaceutical company CEO ("A Life Lived Full," 2015) and the other of his wife, Monika Heimbold, a retired clinical social worker and a co-founder with Queen Silvia of Sweden of the World Childhood Foundation that focuses on child trafficking and exploitation ("Designing a Life," 2016).

Listeners who tune into the May 13 show may get the chance to ask Max a question LIVE on air! All listeners can walk away with a new sense of awareness, an inside view into what makes romantic love endure life's hardest challenges and more!

Tune in Saturday, May 13, 2023 at 11am/EST (New York City time)! Pass the word!
