"It has been my life's pleasure to work for DOROT... it's one of the best organizations in New York! It has been a privilege for me to work for an organization that believes in uniting the generations together." - Sophie Gerber
Sophie Gerber, long-time and beloved volunteer, has now become the author of The Trunk in the Attic: Memories and Musings of a Hundred-Year-Old Broad. The "Amazon #1 new release" and "#3 best-seller when first released" is a quirky and candid collection of stories of Sophie and the Greatest Generation to which she belongs.
At 101 years old, the author tells her life story. Beginning with her hangout spot, the Bronx candy store-cum-bookie haunt run by her Russian Jewish immigrant parents; working for New York society columnist "Cholly Knickerbocker"; meeting WWII servicemen in Times Square; and reinventing herself as a performer (and now author) as a widow in the second half of her life.
