Buffalo, NY – Last December we introduced you to local book author Joan Lorch Staple. She wrote about living in Germany during the Holocaust years as a young girl. It reflected on the Nazi regime that stripped her father from his top management job. The family fled to England. Staple recently sat down with WBFO'S Eileen Buckley to talk about her second book, Change and Challenge: My Life After Thirty.
