Visiting Authors: Jan Eliasberg + Kristin Harmel
Join Jan Eliasberg as she discusses Hannah’s War, a gripping cat-and-mouse tale of love, war, deception, and espionage, set against the backdrop of World War II. In detailing the journey of an extraordinary heroine inspired by a real-life female physicist, Jan elevates the spy thriller with her clear, fierce admiration for the women of the past who refused to be edged out of the world of scientific discovery.
We will also welcome Kristin Harmel as she discusses The Winemaker’s Wife, a fantastic new World War II novel, a stirring, immersive story set in France during the early 1940s, as well present day, that is told primarily from three different perspectives. The Winemaker’s Wife is, ultimately, a story about life, love, loss, deception, determination, perseverance, resistance efforts, intricacies of winemaking, and the importance of forgiveness. It’s pensive, moving, and thoroughly absorbing and a fantastic choice for historical fiction fans and book clubs everywhere.
