The Author Brunch committee is hosting a discussion about the writing of Anita Diamant to better prepare ourselves for her talk at the Author Brunch on April 7. We will focus on her most recent novel, Day After Night, which is based on the true story of the October 1945 rescue of prisoners from the British run Atlit internment camp for “illegal” immigrants located north of Haifa. The story is told from the perspective of four young women, all Holocaust survivors, as they bond together through shared experience and work to re-create their lives. Please join us on Wednesday, April 3, at 7:30 pm, at the home of Deborah Greenstein. To RSVP and for directions, please contact Deb at firstname.lastname@example.org Put “DIAMANT” in capital letters in the Subject Line of your email.
