From Page to Stage - For The Sake of the Children

Wednesday, May 6, 2015 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Meet The Author. Author and historian Joan Adler discusses her book, "For the Sake of the Children: The Letters Between Otto Frank and Nathan Straus Jr," based on a file of letters between the university roommates and lifelong friends. The letters revealed for the first time that Otto Frank, diarist Anne's father, tried desperately to get his family out of war torn Holland in 1941, fifteen months before they went into hiding in the now famous attic. Books will be for sale and the event will conclude with a book signing.
