Joe Huber Jr. will share his mother's autobiography, Such a Life

Joe Huber Jr. grew up on a remote Filipino rubber plantation, 80 miles from the nearest city and accessible only by water. Surrounded by servants in a huge house, he and his siblings each had their own amahs (nannies) until he was six and before he was eight, he had crossed the Pacific Ocean three times on luxury liners in month-long voyages. Then came 31 months as prisoners in Japanese prison camps. Joe devoted his career to repaying America for their family's rescue. He will share his family's story and photographs.
