"Riveting, heartbreaking, and beautifully written, Roads takes us deep into the black heart of Nazi Germany, finding not only horror and despair but a stubborn and tenacious hope and a kind of clarity about what it means to be human." —Christina Baker Kline, number one New York Times bestselling author of Orphan Train and A Piece of the World

 

When Nazi forces occupy the beautiful coastal city of Yalta, Crimea, everything changes. Eighteen-year-old Filip has few options; he is a prime candidate for forced labor in Germany.  Roads is the story of one family lucky enough to escape with their lives as the city burns behind themMarina Antropow is the former owner of the once beloved Cup & Chaucer Bookstore in Montclair. We are so excited to be hosting this event. Please join us as we toast Marina Antropow and her novel, Roads.



 

Sally Mott Freeman, THE JERSEY BROTHERS, Wednesday, May 17th, 7pm, Watchung Booksellers

 

http://www.watchungbooksellers.com/event/sally-mott-freeman-jersey-brothers


 

The extraordinary, real-life adventure of three brothers at the center of the most dramatic turning points of World War II and their mad race to change history—and save one of their own. Based on ten years of research drawn from archives around the world, interviews with fellow shipmates and POWs, and primary sources including diaries, unpublished memoirs, and letters half-forgotten in basements, The Jersey Brothers is a remarkable story of agony and triumph—from the home front to Roosevelt’s White House, and Pearl Harbor to Midway and Bataan.
