Join us for an evening reading and discussion with novelist Andrea Alban! Set on the eve of World War II, Anya’s War is about a Jewish girl from Odessa living in the French Quarter of Shanghai. The book was inspired by Alban’s Jewish father’s childhood in war-torn Shanghai, a little known passage in Holocaust history. Andrea will read excerpts from her novel and present a slide show of historical family photos. Everyone in attendance will receive a pair of "double happiness" chopsticks! A Q&A about the Shanghai Jews will follow and refreshments will be served.
Copies of Anya’s War will be available for purchase after the lecture. This book is appropriate for middle school-aged children and up.
