Alper JCC Jewish Book Festival – Kristin HannahClasses, Workshops & Lectures
Reigning at the top of the New York Times bestselling list for most of 2015 is The Nightingale, Kristin Hannah’s heartbreakingly beautiful novel. With courage, grace and powerful insight, the author celebrates the resilience of the human spirit and the durability of women. The Nightingale captures the epic panorama of WWII and illuminates an intimate part of history seldom seen: the women’s war. The story follows two sisters, separated by years and experience, by ideals, passion and circumstance, each embarking on her own dangerous path toward survival, love, and freedom in German-occupied, war-torn France. Admission is $10 for author presentation and refreshments.
