An Afternoon with Author Alan Fleishman
Join us for a visit from author Alan Fleishman. Alan will be reading from his new novel Lara's Shadow. This compelling piece of historical fiction tells the love story of a Jewish American Army officer and a German woman caught in post-Holocaust hate.
Alan's multi-media presentation offers the historical background upon which the novel is based, with particular emphasis on the critical year of 1963. It explores the extent of German atonement for the Holocaust, and the limits of Jewish forgiveness.
