“The Boy with the Star Tattoo” is a novel of courage, love, and loss spanning a period of 25 years, from post-war France when Israeli agents roamed the countryside rescuing hidden Jewish orphans to the 1969 Israeli military operation the Cherbourg Project, when embargoed Israeli missile boats daringly escaped the French port of Cherbourg.

Focusing on the decimation of European Jewry in the aftermath of the Holocaust, the post-war youth aliyah movement, which brought 16,000 Jewish youth to Mandatory Palestine, and the State of Israel’s military struggles in its nascent years, Carner’s “The Boy with the Star Tattoo” delves deep into the nature of identity, uncertainty, and belonging. Novelist Talia Carner, who will join HBI director Lisa Fishbayn Joffe in conversation, is formerly the publisher of Savvy Woman magazine, an award-winning author of six novels and numerous stories, essays, and articles, and a committed supporter of global human rights.

HBI is honored that Carner is a longstanding member of the HBI Board of Advisors.

“The Boy with the Star Tattoo” will be available on Jan. 30 at Amazon, Bookshop, and your local bookseller. Please note: This event will not be recorded.
