As she discusses her debut novel,
A group of Polish Jews rebuilds their lives after the Holocaust. Recently liberated, Pavel Mandl befriends a woman, Fela, and the young teenage boy, Chaim, with whom she is traveling. When the three decide to live together as a temporary, makeshift family, the ties they create last a lifetime. In her warm portrayal of the postwar highs and lows experienced by Pavel and his family, Schwarz aptly evokes the emotions of those who survived.The author will be available to sign books at the end of the program.
The book will be sold by the Friends of the Library at the event.
