Ellen Feldman discusses her new book, "Paris Never Leaves You."

Living through World War II working in a Paris bookstore with her young daughter, and fighting for her life, Charlotte is no victim.  She is a survivor. But can she survive the next chapter of her life? Alternating between wartime Paris and the 1950s New York publishing world, Feldman’s book is a story of resilience, love, and impossible choices, exploring how survival never comes without a cost.

Ellen Feldman will be joined in conversation with discussion facilitator Alice Moody.
