Best-Selling Author to speak at Congregation B’nai Israel
Sunday, February 28 – 11:00 AM: Social Hall, CBI
PAM JENOFF – WRITER AND FORMER STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICER
Topic: How my diplomatic experiences in Poland inspired the
Holocaust themes of my novels.
Pam Jenoff served as Vice Consul for the US State Department in Krakow, Poland, and as the Special Assistant to the Secretary of the Army at the Pentagon. She is an expert on Poland and the Holocaust and has published several scholarly articles on the topic. Jenoff has also written eight well-received novels. Her internationally best-selling debut novel The Kommandant’s Girl was based on actual events and is a “compelling tale of love and courage in desperate times.” It was nominated for a Quill award and was cited by Publisher’s Weekly for its “luminous simplicity…a breathtaking debut… historical romance at its finest.” Described as “a beautifully, poignant story”, another reviewer wrote: “compelling tale…I couldn’t stop turning the pages”. Several book clubs are reading the novel which comes with a Reading Group Discussion Guide.
This program is open to the public and will be followed by book sales and book-signing by the author. All are welcome. Bagels and coffee will be served.
