Charity Tillemann-Dick | The Encore: A Memoir in Three Acts

Join opera singer and author, Charity Tillemann-Dick for a reading and signing of her new memoir, The Encore: A Memoir in Three Acts. 

Charity Tillemann-Dick was a vivacious young American soprano studying at the celebrated Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest when she received devastating news: her lungs were failing, her heart was three and a half sizes too big, and she would die within five years. Inexplicably, despite her fatal pulmonary condition, she could still sing. Medical experts advised Charity to abandon her musical dreams, but if her time was running out, she wanted to spend it doing what she loved.

In just three years, she endured two double lung transplants. Teetering between life and death, she slowly learned to breathe, walk, talk, eat, and sing again. With new lungs and fierce determination, she eventually fell in love, rebuilt her career, and reclaimed her life. Over a decade after her diagnosis, she has had a chart-topping album, performs around the globe, and is a leading voice for organ donation.
