Sunday, Oct. 21 at 7:00 pm in the Sam Lerner Center for Cultural Arts
One of Oprah’s Top 30 Women Writers, Jenna Blum made an astounding debut with her award-winning novel “Those Who Save Us”, a long-running New York Times and international bestseller which resonated profoundly with readers and garnered effusive critical praise. With her mesmerizing new novel, “The Lost Family”, this dynamic storyteller returns with an immersive, emotionally riveting family saga about the reverberations of World War II across generations.
Jenna has taught novel workshops for 20 years at Grub Street Writers in Boston, where she earned her M.A. at Boston University. In addition to interviewing Holocaust survivors for the Shoah Foundation, Jenna is a public speaker and avid cook: she creates and tests all the recipes in her novels.
We hope you will enjoy this gorgeously written book, and join the conversation as part of our community read “On the Same Page”. This community-wide read of “The Lost Family” will culminate on Sunday, Oct. 21st with a special appearance of Jenna Blum, followed by a book sale and signing.
