This beautiful book is one of the first to launch Simply Read Books' new imprint Read Leaf of fiction, art and photography books and pop culture books.
In Mania's Memory is a powerful Holocaust story by award-winning journalist Lisa Birnie. The story follows the lives of two women, one a Holocaust survivor (Mania) and one an ex-Nazi guard (Johanne), as they cross paths on a search for the truth: did Joanne save Mania's life during the Holocaust?
The advance reception of it is exceptional so far:
The Vancouver Sun says: "A thorough and satisfying exploration of how two people on opposite sides of a great divide survived an unspeakably grim period of human history.”
Robbbi Waisman said, "I almost missed my plane - I couldn't put it down!"
He will be speaking at the book launch in Vancouver next week!
When: Thursday September 23, 6 to 8 pm
Where: Bau Xi Gallery, 3045 Granville Street
If you are in town, please join us for this amazing launch!
