“Once We Were Home,” a novel that weaves together the fictional lives of four displaced children, has been called a “revelation” that animates World War II histories readers never knew about.
Oskar and Ana have been hidden by a Polish farm family. Roger has been raised in a convent. Renata believes her German parents are her own. What happens after war’s end, when the children are wrenched from what they now consider their families? Or when the people who harbored them refuse to let them go? Called “lush, transportive, and heartbreaking” by Kristin Harmel and heralded a “tour-de-force” by Kate Quinn, “Once We Were Home” raises questions of complicity and responsibility, belonging and identity, good intentions and unforeseen consequences, as it confronts what it really means to find home.
Author Jennifer Rosner will be in conversation with Jenna Blum, New York Times and internationally best-selling author and co-founder/CEO of A Mighty Blaze.
This event includes a book signing and reception.
